Harvard Masquerade Ball 2015 attracts more than 2,100 attendees

Spinning aerialists, fearless stilt walkers, seemingly boneless contortionists, daring acrobatic performances, gravity-defying swan ballerinas, multicultural local and nationally known musicians, and hula hoop artists …

Such was the nature of the entertainment that sizzled during the fifth annual Harvard Masquerade Ball, which took place at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Boston on Feb. 28.

More than 2,100 guests attended the event organized by the Harvard Graduate and Professional Student Government (HGPSG), the official student government for the 12 graduate and professional schools of Harvard University.
