Have you ever gone to a ball?
People interact and dance together at pubs and nightclubs nowadays, but attending balls was a huge thing back in the day!
Men show off their stylish versions in tuxedos and expensive materials, while women wear corsets and large dresses.
We may be far ahead in the future, but that doesn’t imply that dancing in ballrooms in enormous ball gowns is gone.
In fact, several organizations host events solely to commemorate the period of our history that revolves around ballroom dancing.
The Stanford Viennese Ball is one of these important occasions.
Stanford’s Viennese Ball
According to its website, the Stanford Viennese Ball is an exciting Stanford institution that includes social dancing, live music, performances, and live contests.
Students who had participated in the Stanford in Austria program were the ones who started it in 1978.
The students were so inspired after attending the great balls in Vienna, Austria, that they took ballroom dancing back to their native nation.
Students were excited to attend the first-ever event hosted in Toyon Hall.
350 students participated in the magnificent night of dancing.
Since then, this custom has evolved into a formal event that students look forward to.
They are ecstatic since attending the ball means they will be able to wear their freshly ironed suits, dresses, and gloves. What’s not to like about that?
The opening dance is one of the events that everyone is looking forward to.
This segment is overseen by the Stanford Viennese Ball Opening Committee.
The opening song impressed everyone in the room!
It’s fascinating to observe their harmony and synchronicity.
The men are dressed in black suits, while the ladies are dressed to the nines in white silk dresses and gloves.
There were multiple lifts and quick spins, and before the audience could recover from the last jump, the dancers performed yet another series of spectacular maneuvers!
This committee’s opening song never has a boring moment.
