The sold out ball was a night to remember. It’s purpose – to take us into the majesty of Vienna, the beauty of Innsbruck, and the charm of Saizburg, with of course, D.C.’s flare and Austria’s royalty.

It didn’t matter if you never waltzed before as long as you came with your dancing shoes on. And you were in good hands, as the dance master led you step by step. The night escalated from Mozart to modern mainstream, and there was not a dull moment on the dance floor.

The Valentine’s Day inspired celebrationtook place until midnight, fitting for a ball, right? Admission included dinner (if you were VIP), ‘battle of the chocolates’ dessert, a European opera performance, an open bar, dancing, and a movie that allowed you to experience the beauty of Austria right from the walls of the embassy.

The event was put together by Things To Do, a social and networking organization catered to the young professions of Washington, D.C. The organization is host to over 175,000 local young professionals.
