Embassy of Austria
3524 International Ct NW
Washington DC 20008
White Tie or Black Tie Optional (dark suits are also fine!). Vintage formal attire from the renaissance era or the 1900s welcome!
You are cordially invited to experience a magical evening at the Austrian Embassy -- one of the grandest diplomatic venues in Washington DC 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.
This is also a great opportunity for a private viewing of the embassy's art work on display, 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.
See below for the video of a past Viennese Ball at the Embassy of Austria. Please note that the Viennese Ball is presented as a formal ball with dancing to an orchestra and not a seated event. As such though there will be a limited amount of seating offered at the event, kindly note that seating is not guaranteed at all times since space is maximized to allow for a dance floor.
