Description

We cordially request the pleasure of your company for a magical Viennese Ball & Holiday Gala Celebration at the Embassy of France, one of the grandest diplomatic venues in DC. An unforgettable gala evening and celebration of Viennese music and dancing along with French wine & desserts await you. A partner or prior dance experience are not needed to attend, as Viennese Waltz lessons will be offered just before the ball.

You do not need a date to attend as we expect both singles and couples to join us. Enjoy a night of dancing to our classical orchestra or watch the twirling silhouettes on the dance floor move to the sounds of the world’s most beloved waltzes, and other dance music from around the world. The Salon Orchestra of Washington will perform the Strauss waltzes, ballroom music from around the world and the famous Radetsky Grand March, led by the popular Tanzmeister-couple Herbert and Carol Traxler. They will also invite you to join them in Strauss Fledermaus Quadrille #6, which is danced at all the major balls in Vienna.

Experience the elegant atmosphere of a European Ball, as well as meet international professionals and members of the diplomatic community.
