Quadrille

On Saturday, January 28th I had the good fortune to be a part of the 57th Quadrille Ball. Since November, I’ve been attending weekly dance practices learning the Quadrille dance, a dance that was fashionable in late 18th- and 19th-century Europe and its colonies. Performed by four couples in a rectangular formation, it is literally a formal square dance.

The Quadrille Ball took place at the ballroom in The Pierre, and benefits the Germanistic Society of America. As one of the dancers of the Quadrille, I essentially became a debutant. I got to dress up in a white dress, and be escorted and presented by my dance partner Christopher Cooke.

Once the Quadrille dance was completed, dancers and guests got to dance the night away!

Dancing in the Quadrille Ball was one of the most rewarding experiences. Not only will I remember this night for years to come, but I made some new friends, that I’m sure will be life-long friends.
