The Grand Ball Of The City is a fabulous and unique event that will take place in London at “The Grand”, one of the city’s most beautiful and historic venues, on the night of Friday December 29th, 2017. For the first time the tradition of the “Grand Balls” of 100 years ago is resumed with a modern take, renewing London’s artistic and cultural celebration, combining its lifestyle and allure and uniting for one night the generations in the name of music and dance. It’s a high-spirited ball in a unique atmosphere and the fashionable highlight of the winter season. An orchestra, a live band, singers, performers and two DJs will interact on stage.

 

The music program of the night will spawn from ballroom dance till modern music and it will be a fantastic journey through the last 100 years of dance music. The first part of the night will be dedicated to Waltz, Polka, Mazurka, Tango, Foxtrot… until Mambo and Bachata and more. At 11.30 pm the program will enter the ‘50s/’60s and move until the ‘90s, including “disco” and the famous ‘80s hits. The “youngest” part of the night will begin at 1 am with modern dance music, house and electronic.
