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. To add even more diversity, we will 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 and dance on an exquisite marble floor while meeting other diverse internationally-minded professionals in town.
