You are cordially invited to join us for a memorable Masquerade Ball with our International Club of DC friends! We planned an unforgettable evening for you and a memorable international celebration of music, wine, food, and dancing at the Grand Ballroom of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. You will be regaled with elegance and sophistication during our Masquerade Ball, which features two live bands, a lavish dinner buffet, open bar, an extravagant dessert buffet, enchanting dance performances, and much more!
Black Tie Requested - suits are also fine! Cocktail Attire Optional (period formal attire from the 1800s, 1900s and the Renaissance era welcome!)
YOU DO NOT NEED A DATE TO ATTEND
You are welcome to attend the ball without a date. We expect as many singles as couples. Come on your own or with friends for an unforgettable evening!
My mother Maria will make a special appearance to showcase her handmade jewelry collection, which includes pieces crafted out of glass and Swarovski crystals.
For the first half of the evening, enjoy dancing to the music of a classical orchestra performing Viennese waltzes and ballroom dance music for an unforgettable night of dancing. For the second half of the evening, the Brazilian band Origem will perform salsa, merengue, Brazilian samba and other Latin sounds as we turn the music up a notch for a truly international dance experience. We will also play a variety of international dance music during band breaks.
One of the most exquisite venues in DC, the museum's grand Renaissance Revival building and the elegant grand ballroom and Mezzanine provide the perfect setting to bring to life the timeless elegance of a formal ball. As you enter the museum, you will be greeted by a luxurious marble reception area, and a ballroom adorned by three beautiful crystal chandeliers and art from the museum’s permanent collection. White marble staircases sweep upward to the spacious Mezzanine where you will feast on an international buffet of dinner and desserts. Watch the twirling silhouettes on the marble dance floor below move to the sounds of the world’s most beloved music. Stroll down the sweeping marble stair cases of the museum while meeting other internationally-minded professionals.
