Celebrating 40 Years
Where Culture and Community
Take Center Stage
The Wolf Trap Ball is held on the magnificent stage at Wolf Trap’s Filene Center – one of the largest stages in America. The 2011 Ball will be a celebration of Wolf Trap‘s 40th Anniversary Season.
Always one of the region’s most spectacular events, the Ball benefits Wolf Trap Foundation’s renowned education programs, including Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, a nationwide and international program that uses the performing arts disciplines of drama, music and movement to help teach literacy and other academic and social skills to disadvantaged children.
