The Formal Dance
Don your finest and come enjoy an enchanting evening at Anime Matsuri as you dance to formal music featured in anime and video games. Join us at the Beginner’s Formal Dance Panel, which will be hosted earlier that afternoon, to learn some basic dance steps or brush up on your skills. Be sure to check your outfit against the dress code, so you can show off your elegant attire or formal cosplay with no worries. Feel free to direct any questions, suggestions, or comments toward the forums or the Facebook Event Page.

All attire must be formal. This means:
- Attire must be generally formal.
- All attire must be clean and well-kept.
- No jeans, t-shirts, denim, or polo shirts will be accepted.
- Dresses must be atleast knee-length. Meaning that when you are standing the dress must at least touch the top of your knee, and this length does not include see-through materials. Dresses must be formal. No sundresses or casual dresses will be permitted.
- Shoes must be formal. No bare feet, flip-flops, tennis shoes, platform boots, combat boots, hiking boots, crocs, etc.
- Plain button-down shirts must be completed with a tie. Meaning that if you are wearing slacks and a buttoned shirt, you must have a tie.
- Formal cosplay is awesome! It just must be formal, such as Princess Zelda or an Ouran suit, or a formal version of a character(for instance: Gaara in a tux rather than his normal outfit).
- No armor or robes, unless they are clearly formal or ceremonial. Formal military uniforms are fine. Maid outfits are not acceptable.
- No over-sized costumes, such as big armor or wings. These can be hazardous on the dance-floor.
- Please leave props and weapons elsewhere. We won’t have a place to store them, and you’ll want your hands to be free for dancing!
- No bare midriffs or chests. Formal strapless dresses are acceptable.
- Masks are not required, but are certainly acceptable.
- Lolita will be accepted only if it is of a formal style, and fits the dress code.
- No rave/dance party attire will be accepted.
- Staff at the door will have the final say in what will be accepted.
