Famous characters from the arts will come alive Nov. 7 as the Hamilton Academy of Performing Arts presents the first annual Masquerade Ball on Nov. 7 in their performance centre at 108 Park St. in Dundas.

The academy asks revellers to dress as their favourite character from the arts such as a writer, artist, classical musician, literary character or in formal dress with a mask.

Classic Venetian masquerade masks can be purchased at the door for $10.

In addition to the costume opportunity, the academy is providing a free dance lesson for couples as part of the night.

Participants will take the lesson in the school’s adjoining dance studio and then practice their new steps on the dance floor.

“Shakespeare, Beethoven, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, the choices are endless,” said Academy general manager Patti Cannon.

“Everyone has a favourite character and this night promises to be the social highlight of the year for anyone who likes to dance, eat and have fun.”

The newly opened academy is directed by internationally renowned Ballet Master Max Ratevosian, winner of the 2008 City of Hamilton Arts Award, and Anna Shkolnik, Ontario educator and principal.

Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at the academy.

The event is sponsored by the BMO Bank of Montreal in Dundas. Doors open at 7:30 and music starts at 8 p. m.
