The Quadrille Committee and the Germanistic Society of America mourn the passing of Alan Z. Feuer. We wish to express our deepest sympathy to his family and many friends. Alan, who performed as a Quadrille dancer at the Quadrille Ball in 1976, has since become an integral part of this charity organization which furthers cross-Atlantic understanding with its student exchange program between Germany and the U.S.
Patiently and lovingly, Alan taught and guided generations of young Quadrille Ball dancers not only in the art of the Quadrille dance but also in civility and etiquette thereby helping them to appreciate the timeless values for which he stood and lived by. He opened his heart to many and in return they opened their hearts to him making the Quadrille community his family and home.
Since 2006, Alan also served on the Quadrille Committee. He will be missed tremendously by everybody who has been involved with the Quadrille over the last 35 years. He has touched all of our lives and hearts through his passion, empathy, generosity, dedication, charm and sense of humor. Always dapper and mild mannered, Alan Feuer was old fashioned in the most beautiful sense of the word, the perfect gentleman – inside and out. Alan, we miss you!
