The British Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a partner of the 21st Austrian Ball and would love to invite all our members to this peak of the ball season.

The Austrian Ball in Prague preserves the traditions of the original Viennese Ball. It sticks to those traditions, which are usual for Viennese Balls yet today. The Austrian Ball begins with a grand opening by members of the Committee of Young Ladies and Gentlemen. Following this, other attendees are called to dance by way of the announcement of the “Alles Walzer.” If the guests have been thoroughly paying attention during the opening, participation in the midnight quadrille might be much easier then. There will, however, be no shortage of professional guidance enabling participation in the quadrille also by those guests who are not as experienced. Finally, each lady will receive a small present when leaving the ball, the so-called “Damenspende”. You will not only dance the Waltz at the Austrian Ball, though, because in the in-house discotheque, young and young-at-heart guests usually dance up until the early morning hours.

And how about the stars of the next Austrian Ball? Czech National Symphonic Orchestra, Orchestra Josef Hlavsa, Viennese dance teacher Michael Hysek and last but not least, a famous Czech singer Monika Absolonova or the Czech “Sinatra” Jan Smigmator followed by an amazing DJ Adam Nedvídek or an excellent pianist Mário Bihári. A selection of exquisite Viennese specialities and premium Austrian wines will then just top a perfect evening.

The Austrian Ball is a non-profit event happening under the auspices of Dr Alexander Van den Bellen, the President of Austria. Its proceeds will support a charity organisation “Dejme dětem šanci” (Let’s give children a chance).
