The Grand Galloping Gala has been a major attraction since 2017. It is an open invitation to attendees of all ages! The night will start with an introduction to ballroom dancing and progress with semi-formal dancing music from talented musicians that will be sure to keep you entertained. Guests are encouraged (but not required) to dress up in their fanciest pants, favorite dresses, or whimsical cosplays. This is a fantastical event for all to enjoy.
The Gala Afterparty starts with a beautiful dance routine from the Step2Harmony cosplay troupe before transitioning to music that's a little harder and with some more energy. Here, the Gala Afterparty will evolve into more of a party atmosphere as our musicians let loose a little more. This music-and-dance packed evening will feature classic jams from the show along with original songs, popular hits, and remixes from our musical performers.
