About House of Vineyard
Roxette Capriles is part of ballroom house House of Vineyard. The dynamic, internationally recognized House of Vineyard was established in 2014 by Amber Vineyard. Today, House of Vineyard is more than a group that organizes or participates in balls: it is a powerful movement that introduced ballroom culture in the Netherlands and continues to enrich it.
Besides its major contribution to balls worldwide, House of Vineyard also organizes the Pussy Wagon Stage at the annual Milkshake Festival and voguing workshops in the Melkweg. In addition, House of Vineyard’s involvement each year during Amsterdam Pride is unmistakable. Through these activities, its members share their knowledge and values regarding the ballroom scene. This is the first exhibition co-curated by House of Vineyard as a collective.
From December 2, 2023, the Amsterdam Museum presents the exhibition Grand March: A Historic House through a Ballroom Lens. The exhibition is co-curated by House of Vineyard, the first ballroom house in the Netherlands. In the rooms of the Willet-Holthuysen House, an Amsterdam Museum location, House of Vineyard exposes the power of ballroom culture with radical fashion interventions and art installations.
