The White City Ball is back by popular demand.

This year the boys at Villa Verde are raising the bar of fun, food and frolic — with an emphasis on dancing.

Michael Berton and Robert Klie have arranged for several live music and dance performances from Jarana to Salsa, Bochata, Tango – and even a modern dance based on an ancient Mayan legend.

A deejay will rock the house — or more accurately, rock the villa — as guests dance the night away. All wearing white, of course, in keeping with the White City theme.

“We are so excited about the event this year — the community reaction to the announcement instantly filled my inbox with ticket requests and information!” said Berton, hinting coyly at something more to come. “We are working on a few surprises for the party — shhhh.”

The White City Ball is October 22 from 8 to 12. Tickets are $400 pesos and must be purchased in advance at Villa Verde Tuesdays through Saturdays. No tickets will be sold at the event.

Ticket bearers receive a complimentary glass of champagne and a botonas buffet in addition to loads of music, entertainment and dancing. Cash bar.

Villa Verde is at Calle 56 #468 x 53 y 55, Centro, Mérida
