Vienna town (Austria)
It is with great honour that the first Viennese ball in Geneva, which will commemorate the “100 years of the Creation of the League of Nations” at the same time as the “100 years of multilateralism in Geneva” initiative launched for the same, will take place under the high patronage of the Permanent Mission of Austria to the United Nations Office and specialized agencies in Geneva.
A ball according to Viennese tradition begins with a Polonaise at the beginning and an opening waltz danced by debutants. We rely on the expertise of the specialists of the dance school «Schweighofer» to introduce the Genevan candidates and develop the opening choreography.
When we speak of the Vienna ball, we easily think of the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known as «Sissi». She was the most celebrated guest of Beau-Rivage Geneva, a family business for five generations, with charm and elegance on the shores of Lake Geneva.
It was in this sumptuous setting that the first casting call for debutants took place for the opening of the Vienna Ball in Geneva. These beautiful young people, waltzing on Viennese air, have already made the dream come alive….
