The Washington Ballet Gala – Illuminate and Ignite

May 10, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - May 11, 2019 @ 12:00 AM


This year’s Gala illuminates the wealth of talent found at The Washington Ballet and The Washington School of Ballet and will spark your enthusiasm in bringing artistic excellence to our city. Enjoy an evening of cocktails, dinner, performances by dancers of The Washington Ballet, and your own dance party with a killer DJ that will make you want to dance till dawn.

Join us for an unforgettable night as we shine a spotlight on our dancers and the impact of our educational programs that inspire so many in our community.

ABOUT THE EVENT: The evening starts with a cocktail reception from 7-8 pm, followed by a sit-down dinner and dance performances and will conclude with dessert and dancing until midnight.

Again this year, we offer our JETÉ AFTER DARK…specially curated for young professionals…that runs concurrently in the Upper Gallery of The Anthem with the full Gala program. Enjoy cocktails, food stations and theater-style seating where you can watch and enjoy dance performances by The Washington Ballet. At 10 pm, all are invited to join in dessert and dancing with Gala guests on the main floor of the venue! Limited seating is available for JETÉ AFTER DARK, so reserve today!

All proceeds from this event benefit the arts, education and community engagement programs of The Washington Ballet.
