Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown announces special partnership with the Washington Ballet
A walk-on role in The Nutcracker and a private D.C. culture chat over coffee, hosted by Artistic Director Septime Webre, are just a few examples of Capella’s ultra-luxury guest services.
WASHINGTON D.C. – March xx, 2013 – Capella Washington D.C., Georgetown has partnered with The Washington Ballet to bring guests a more intimate and exclusive experience through the 2013-2014 ballet season. Not only will guests have the opportunity to access premium seating but they will also have an inside look into machinations of The Washington School of Ballet, including classes at various levels in their Move like a Dancer series. The hotel opens end of March 2013.
Guests can take their newly acquired ballet insights a step further with purchase of the VIP Holiday package. Here, concierge service goes beyond four tickets to The Nutcracker and a backstage tour at The Warner Theater; it also offers an extremely rare Adult/Child walk-on role. Should guests prefer to appreciate the art rather than take part in it, Capella Washington D.C. can offer them the Dance Studio Insider. Granting complimentary access to The Washington Ballet Open Rehearsal events, guests can also retain a more personal experience during private weekday studio rehearsals should they simply request it from their Capella Personal Assistant.
Capella also brings an unprecedented look into the elite realm of Washington D.C. art & culture by offering entry to intimate engagements with Septime Webre, Artistic Director of The Washington Ballet. Guests of Capella can partake in Salon Evenings, moderated by Mr. Webre and hosted by the hotel. Featuring D.C. luminaries discussing select topics and emerging trends, this cocktail setting is sure to immerse any partaking hotel guest into Capitol society.
A more personal interaction with Septime Webre is available through an Arts Coffee. Here, guests can enjoy a private coffee with the Artistic Director and pick his thoughts and experience on D.C.’s art and culture scene, including the latest hot spots and happenings.
VIP access, rare intimate local experiences, and catered personal attention are all Capella brand staples, thus making this partnership with The Washington Ballet a perfect fit. For more information on The Washington Ballet, please visit www.washingtonballet.org.
