The glitter of crystal and the shining faces of youth... the grand Polonaise… breath-taking evening dresses and coattail finery... waltzes and marzurkas… a furtive kiss and the snap of a fan… These are images that were once synonymous with the Grand Presentation Balls held in in stately venues across Europe. A tradition most thought forgotten is a classic in Vienna and has recently has come back to Paris. We believe it is time for our community to experience such an evening of elegance and grace hereby we invite your young person to be a part of it!
Bal Młodzieżowy - the Debutante & Cavalier Crystal Presentation Ball will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at Tremont City Side Ballroom. The event is open to young men and women ages 16-23. The preparation will be compacted to accommodate the young people's schedules. Training will take place only on Saturday, January 4, the evening of Friday, January 24 and the morning of January 25. Participation is mandatory.
The Debutante & Cavalier experience is designed not only to be a gala social event, but also an educational experience to make students proud of their Polish heritage. This event will include activities such as short courses in social etiquette and networking, Polish history, customs and traditions as well as ballroom dance. All will learn to dance the stately Polonaise in addition to the Parents' Waltz. Scholarship opportunities will be available to reward community service projects and essay composition.
