LA VIE PARISIENNE: Bal Masqué de la St-Valentin 2014
8PM-12AM at The DTA, 60 Pine St, NY NY 10005
"When good Americans die, they go to Paris." - Oscar Wilde
THIS VALENTINE'S DAY, Dances of Vice transforms New York's first private Victorian clubhouse into a 1930s Parisian cabaret hall for a dazzling period costumed masquerade and dinner, featuring a special Valentine's menu (see below) prepared with ingredients known for their aphrodisiac properties. Masks are encouraged between 8-9:30pm in all non-dining hall areas. Reveals at 9:30pm.
CARTE BLANCHE sets the mood for a perfect evening in the City of Love with a romantic repertoire of French and American popular jazz from the 1920-40s, as well as classic Latin jazz, bossa nova, tango and swing melodies.
The sensual sophisticates of COMPANY XIV (Nutcracker Rouge, Le Cirque Feerique), and THE PAINTED LADIES PROJECT (Rocha Dance Theater, Floating Kabarett) present a multitude of attractions to beguile our guests, while the winking beauties of THE DOLL EYES promenade through the dance floor in a vintage lingerie fashion show.
Single guests are invited to wear a pink rose to identify their romantic status and participate in a variety of titillating matchmaking games throughout the evening, hosted by NYC romance expert Amy Van Doran, the "matchmaker for extraordinary people". Romantic and risque parlor games also lie in store for singles and couples alike.
Dress Code: Vintage or period costume attire is encouraged. Formal evening attire is requested - guests in casual attire will not be permitted in the club. Masks are encouraged in all non-dining areas between 8-9:30pm.
