DC’s most glamorous gathered in the swanky ballroom of the Ritz Carlton in downtown Washington on Saturday night for the Mad Hatter’s Dance Party, the 11th Annual Jete Society Party, to celebrate the Ballet’s upcoming premiere of ALICE (in Wonderland).
Hosts Winston Bao Lord and Ashley Taylor thanked the guests before attendees were treated to a special performance choreographed by Washington Ballet company member Aaron Jackson.
Washington Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman and girlfriend Heather Downen were in attendance, as were dozens of GOG’s Hot 100s, including Diana Minshall, Sally Stiebel, Cori Sue Morris, Alyssa Farah, Lindsey Becker, Becca Thorsen, George Foulard, Ava Deylami, Fritz Brogan, Reed Landry, Nick Cafritz, Kaitlyn Reilly and Sondra Ortagus .
Throughout the evening, cast members in full costume mingled with the socials, and DJ Pitch One from New York provided the music that packed the centrally located dance floor several times throughout the evening. The décor, provided by Syzygy Event Production, did not disappoint.
The event was sponsored by Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Bacardi USA, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Red Bull, Uber, Microsoft, Enjoy Cupcakes, Bai antioxidant drinks and others.
