Viennese ball returns for children

After a successful Vienna Ball earlier this month, it’s nearly time for the younger generation to join the dance with the second Children’s Charity Vienna Ball. On Saturday the Hilton Hotel in Nicosia will be transformed to ooze Viennese class and tradition.

Children aged five to 15 are invited to join the dance and have a ball. And all for a good cause as all donations will go towards a Foundation of Children with Special Needs. Choreographer and Director of the Nicosia-based Fly-in-Dance Institute, Tatiana Zenevich will provide free dance lessons to prepare the children for their first ball experience.

“It is a great responsibility, as training children is more complicated than training adults, for whom we have already had nine Vienna Balls in Cyprus. So now, our goal is to organise the Children’s Ball in the same classical tradition. I am delighted to see the enthusiasm of both children and parents,” Zenevich said.

She believes that within a few months the children can master polka, waltz, polonaise and padegras. Besides dance lessons, the Nicosia Etalon Etiquette Club, founded and managed by Elena Maroun, will also provide some useful sessions to equip the young participants with appropriate ball (and not only) etiquette.
