From dance clothes to the dance floor The Washington Ballet certainly dressed to impress in their finest, scariest, yet chic, attire to kick off the season at the Dracula Soirée last Friday at The National Museum of Women in the Arts.

The Soirée was a remarkable and exhilarating event to celebrate the Ballet’s unprecedented two-week run of Dracula The Kennedy Center (October 24-November 4). Set in the Dracula’s castle, the classic Museum was transformed by Syzygy Events into a macabre vampire lair. The Ballet welcomed over 500 friends and patrons, most of whom were in lavish costumes to enjoy themselves into the wee hours. Guests were more than delighted to sink their teeth into the five-star cuisine provided by Occasions Caterers, sip special libations created by Boxwood Winery and Paul’s Wine and Spirits and strut their stuff as they grooved on the dance floor to the fine sounds of the renown DJ EZ Groove (Eric Sudol).

Artists from The Studio Company elegantly performed excerpts from Trey McIntyre’s Blue Until June. Auctioneers Tommy McFly and Kelly Collis from FRESH FM, worked bidders into a frenzy with some exclusive item offers in a live auction and guest poured over the delectable silent auction.

I want to give a BIG THANKS to The Women’s Committee and Jeté Society for creating such a wonderful event to kick off the season. The party was a graveyard SMASH!! I (and everyone at the Soirée) appreciated your hard work. Furthermore, you all looked fabulous.
