You're cordially invited to an adventure at Kumoricon's Fungus Fiefdom Grand Ball, where you can dance the night away, sweep someone off their feet, and/or twirl around the ballroom. The KumoriBall is an eloquent adventure you can embark on to level up your ballroom skills. Lessons will be offered throughout the convention. Our wonderful ballroom staff will be available for dances and to help you remember any patterns and moves that were taught. Formal attire is required. Please review the dress code for guidance.
