The inaugural Blue Danube Ball on 10 March 2016 - an evening of ballroom, traditional and disco dancing!
- The evening will start with a dancing class taught by George-Wilhelm and Christina – beginners welcome! Everyone can learn how to waltz!
- Then put your new skills to the test accompanied by live music, such as the Blue Danube Waltz and other well-known Austrian as well as modern tunes.
- Quadrille and Galopp: Find your partner and don’t lose them in this traditional group dance that keeps getting faster and faster, moderated by George-Wilhelm. Examples here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnAXL7c4tC4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryNWO7wbMvk
- Traditional Serbian Dance/ Kolo: Join in for some Serb folklore with live music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSmP4eGBKr4
- Disco dancing until doors close at 1:00 am
Black Tie/ Elegant attire. In Vienna, men usually wear a tuxedo (dinner jacket) or a black suit with a bow tie. Ladies wear floor-length dresses.
Traditional Austrian and Serbian Food, as well as Austrian wine and plenty of other drinks will be served. Throughout the evening, enjoy delicious Serbian specialties, such as spicy Ajvar spread, Ćevapi (grilled minced meat) and traditional pastry Gibanica. At Viennese balls, hungry dancers traditionally eat Goulash, a beef stew. Coffee is generously provided by Austrian Airlines.
Live Music and disco by Max and friends
We look forward to dancing with you!
