It is a Saturday evening and in order to have as much dancing as possible we will already start at 18:30
Frequently asked? For the answers please scoll down
What is the programm?
Please click on the button below
Do I need a dancepartner?
No!!!! As the number of boy and girls is very unbalanced this year we worked out other solutions for the showcases. A special rehearsal plan has been established to make sure everybody gets enough practise. Please make sure to keep to this plan very strictly.
Where can I find my gown or suit?
Please have a look at the button attire
Why does it take place at the Salons Mantovani?
Ideal location with a very big parket floor at reasonable prices
What is included in the price?
aperitif, cold buffet, dessert, soft drinks, free parking, and the whole ball programm
Why do juniorclub dancers also pay for the ball?
The yearly fee only covers the danceclasses and the preparation classes to the ball. We cannot cover ther galaball with annual class fee!
Do I need to participate in the Galabal?
No you are not obliged. However it is a very experience to follow the whole programme including the ball. Foreign Universities still do have the tradition of galaballs and for your professional life, you might be invited to represent your country, your profession or your company at a galaball event
Are the parents joining us?
Yes. This ball is hold as an formal event where the participant will present the confidence and poise they have achieved in dancing and during the formal dinner event
Only one parent can join me? / Parents dance
Sometimes important agenda issues will be problem and only one parent can accompany the student to ball. However it is better for the dancer if at least one can come to show him/her the apreciation for the effort to come to the dance classes for a whole year.
We do not hold a special dance with the parents any more. But if you wish to have a dance with you daughter or sun, then please take the time to practise at least once with them at home. Your daughter or son will be delighted to show you what they share their skill with you.
Anyhow we plan enough time for the parents and students to dance on this really beautifull floor of 200m².
Crash classes for parents with dance experience can be booked as private lessons. (Max. 3 couples they should all have the same level)
Prices and booking please by sms to 0496 50 90 83
Can other family members join us?
With pleasure. Take care that brother and sister should be dancers themselves, so they can really participate in the ball.

All groups will present 3 dances. For these showcases we will hold rehearsals. You don't need to partner up. This year every group will present a real showpiece, choreographed by the teachers. Take the challenge.
Dresscode: black tie also for the parents and guests
Festive evening gown for all participants and guests. Festliche Abendgarderobe für alle Teilnehmer.
Debutant girls: Long dress, shoes, coiffure, eventually juwerly
the idea is to learn how to move in an evening gown with poise and confidence
In order to practise, we ask the girls to wear something similar in length including the shoes already during the rehearsals
