Next year, we are starting an event section that will be featuring high-class and high culture events around the world. The first event we will be discussing is the Vienna Opera Ball to be held on February 28th, 2019 in Vienna, Austria.
We are introducing the Vienna Opera Ball because this is one of the best events for a lady to practice her etiquette and deportment skills. Unlike many other formal events, this ball has kept to the tradition of men wearing white-tie and women, ball gowns. What’s also wonderful is that attendees know how to dance the Viennese Waltz and are expected to cover the dance floor with graceful spins and glides.
There are very few events today that still offer such old world, high-class charm. So, a lady must go in search of them. It’s the best way to further refine her social skills and tastes.
If you cannot travel to Austria, don’t fret. There are versions of this ball held in different cities around the world, including Washington D.C., Paris, New York, Moscow, Stockholm, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Dubai.
Here’s a short list of Viennese balls scheduled around the world for 2019:
