The Adelaide Town Hall played host to the 2011 UniSA Masked Ball, a night of mystery and romance. I had never attended the Ball before, so I was intrigued to find out how UniLife would fulfil their promise of mystery and romance…
I didn’t have to wait long to find out the first. As we ascended the stairs of the Town Hall, two dapper young gentlemen handed out wrist bands, silver for the boys and purple for the girls. Each band had a name on it – half of a famous couple from movies, books or real life. The first one to find their partner would be eligible for a mysterious prize from UniLife. This certainly added an element of surprise to the night, and as we sipped champagne and snacked on canapés, our conversation would be punctured by Louis XVI, Emma Woodhouse, Prince William or Princess Jasmine as they tried to find their partner.
Unfortunately I, as Elizabeth Bennett, did not find my Mr Darcy, so I cannot comment on the romance part of the night. However, after a display from the UniSA cheerleading team The Sabres, and another display of breakdancing from Freak Elites, the DJ cranked some tunes and I was able to dance my cares away. Props to the last DJ of the night, who sent us on our way with Dancing in the Moonlight. YOU ARE A LEGEND.
Thanks and a big well done to the UniLife team for putting together such an enjoyable, mysterious but not quite romantic (for me anyway, I’m hoping some other Elizabeth Bennet’s found their Mr Darcy) night. I look forward to next year!
