Noche de Pasión
The Washington Ballet’s fourth annual benefit party, Noche de Pasión 2014 Colombia Tropical, rocked the Dupont Circle residence of Colombian Ambassador Luis Carlos Villegas and Mrs. Carmela de Villegas on Feb. 8. The evening supported Latino ballet dancers, scholarship students and The Washington Ballet Latino Dance Fund. The VIP reception featured a special dance performance with excerpts from the company’s recent Jazz/Blues Project. After an exotic Latin buffet, guests enjoyed the live music of Colombia’s Gregorio Uribe Big Band and Latin Grammy award nominee Adriana Lucia as they danced into the wee hours.
