The Washington Ballet celebrated the world premiere of Septime Webre’s "Hemingway: The Sun Also Rises" with the Moveable Feast: Hemingway in Paris Ball at the Library of Congress in the Jefferson Building April 12.

One of D.C.’s premier fundraising events, the annual gala celebrated ballet’s deep ties with the community and raises critical funds for the ballet’s training and outreach programs. Moveable Feast: The Hemingway in Paris Ball was chaired by Jackie Clegg Dodd and former Sen. Chris Dodd with honorary chair Mariel Hemingway and the Washington Ballet's board of directors. Among the thanks was a big one for Councilman Jack Evans who made sure ballet programs got D.C. government funding.

After dinner by Susan Gage Caterers, guests enjoyed performances by the ballet’s professional dancers and students of TWB@THEARC and joined in for some dancing themselves as DJ Pitch One got everyone out on the dance floor in the central hall of the beautiful Jefferson Building.
