12th Annual Viennese Ball: A Night in Vienna
March 4, 2016 | 7:00 pm

You are cordially invited to experience a magical evening at the Austrian Embassy for an unforgettable Viennese celebration of music, food, wine and dancing. 

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 world’s favorite 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 big balls in Vienna.

Experience the elegant atmosphere of a European Ball, as well as meet international professionals and members of the diplomatic community. You do not need a date to attend. You are welcome to attend without a date, as we expect as many singles as couples.
