The National Society of Arts and Letters held its 11th Annual Viennese Ball Nov. 9 at the Cosmos Club, where gala attendees waltzed into the wee hours. Gala chairs, Laura Ivey and Maria Contos, offered an evening of singing ensembles with dancing and dining, culminating in a 18th century waltz quadrille danced to a repertoire of opera melodies. Living by the adage that a dance legacy must be performed in order to be preserved, waltzing in Washington, D.C., will continue to thrive.
