Viennese Ball is an exciting Stanford tradition with social dancing, live music, performances, and live contests. It was started in 1978 by students returning from the Stanford-in-Austria program, who were inspired by the vibrant balls which took place in Vienna. These Viennese balls usually began with a lavish opening ceremony featuring honored dignitaries, costumed dancers, and handsomely-clad young couples. Stanford's first Viennese Ball, held in Toyon Hall, was attended by 350 students. Since then, the ball has blossomed into a prestigious formal affair held at magnificent off-campus ballrooms.
******** EVENT INFO ********
Viennese Ball is first and foremost a time for celebration and merriment with friends. Though the ball emphasizes social dance, you need not be an experienced dancer to have a good time — with frequent performances, live music, and refreshments*, there's always something to do. In addition, we offer complimentary social dance classes at the Stanford campus in the weeks before Viennese Ball to get you up to speed. Don't worry about transportation either! Shuttles between the Stanford campus and the hotel are included in your ticket! Take this opportunity to try something different, magical, and uniquely Stanford.
