'Isle of Men'
Are you attending the Concordia Ball with a group of friends but without a dance partner? Are you going with a partner who enjoys the atmosphere but is not necessarily enthusiastic about dancing? Do you have any favourite dance but no companion for it? Or would you simply like to dance with a different gentleman?
The Concordia Ball offers an 'Isle of Men' – outstanding dance partners will be available to dance waltz, foxtrot, tango, cha cha, rumba, samba or boogie with our female guests.

Press Club Concordia, an organisation of Austrian journalists and writers, has been holding a traditional Viennese ball at the Vienna City Hall for over Protected content . As one of the few summer balls in Vienna, around 2,000 guests attend every year, including well-known representatives from politics, business, arts & culture and the media.
