Jack Vettriano to host tea dance at The Waldorf
Dance the afternoon away with Jack Vettriano at The Waldorf on Sunday 5th June.
The tea dance event is to tie-in with Vettriano’s new exhibition, The Ballroom Spy, which features twenty paintings by Jack Vettriano and forty gorgeous black and white photographs by Jeanette Jones, which showcase the glamorous and intoxicating world of professional ballroom dancing.
On Sunday 5th June 2011, Jack Vettriano and Heartbreak will be hosting a very special champagne tea dance at the Waldorf Hilton in the beautiful art deco surroundings of the Palm Court.
Organised by Heartbreak and hosted by Jack Vettriano and Jeanette Jones, this very special event will take place in the Waldorf Hilton hotel’s Palm Court, the grand centrepiece room where people have socialised and danced since the hotel’s opening in 1908.
Step back in time to an age of elegance and romance and enjoy a delicious high tea with champagne, fingers sandwiches, cakes and scones and watch some of the best Ballroom, Latin American and Tango dancers in the world perform three exhibition sets during the afternoon. Details of the dancers and their performances may be found in the downloadable PDF – see link above.
Guests will also be invited to take to the floor and dance the afternoon away to Ross Mitchell’s live five-piece band who will entertain you with ballroom classics. It will be a truly authentic and timeless experience. See below for details of how to hire a dance partner for the afternoon.
The event wraps up at 5pm when guests will be given a goody bag to take home featuring exclusive gifts put together for this unique event and including a copy of the limited edition Ballroom Spy exhibition poster and catalogue, signed by Jack Vettriano.
