The ballroom season has started and the preparation of the multicultural GALA Night 2018 is coming to the final stage. On the 3rd of March, the expat community of Brno (and not only) is going to meet at the international ball in Besední dům.
The aim of the GALA Night, which is operated by Foreigners Brno, is to spend a pleasant time among both expats and Czech citizens. It is the only ball held in the English language in Brno. People from various corners of the world can talk, dance and meet new friends to feel at home in the Czech Republic.
The ball is called GALA Night due to its purpose. According to the ball program manager Sabina Jelínková, the evening, like any other ball, should not miss the ballroom atmosphere. The multicultural night brings an opportunity to feel noble, to put on elegant evening robes, create original haircuts, simply to show ourselves in the gold light.
The polished atmosphere is the reason why the ball is organized in Besední dům, the charming residence of Brno Philharmonic Orchestra where Queen Elizabeth II. had lunch when she was visiting the city.
Music and dancing will accompany the entire night. Ballroom dance music, as well as the English classic, swing, modern pop, and acoustic sessions are the part of the program in the main dancing room and the lounge. Thirteen artists will come to show their dance and music performances.
The international evening is supported by several partners covering different job fields. Among them can be found Grafton Recruitment, one of the largest recruitment companies in Europe, and the airline company BMI Regional that connects more than 200 worldwide destinations. CTP is central Europe’s largest industrial developer that has been cooperating with Brno for decades. Domeq is one of their successful projects. Last but not least, the partner Business for Breakfast provides an opportunity to start your business by meeting professionals over a cup of coffee.
As the ball is a high-class event, an elegant dress code is required. Ladies are expected to have ball gowns or floor-length evening dresses, gentlemen should come in dinner jackets, tuxedos, dark suits with ties or bow ties.
The motto of the GALA Night goes: “together we move the world forward”. Come enjoy the evening’s special vibes where the barriers between nations are overcome! Buy a ticket online or make a visit to the office, Masarykova 32.
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
