Be part of a distinguished, international New York network while promoting transatlantic relations. The Quadrille, a fundraiser for student exchange between the U.S. and Germany, is inviting young professionals to join the Quadrille Ball 2018. Every year, young volunteers from diverse professional and national backgrounds between the ages of 21 and 30 perform the French dance Quadrille at this German-American Ball. Prospective dancers for the next season will be invited to a reception in Manhattan on October 16, 2017. They will learn about the dance, their commitment, the people involved, the Quadrille Ball on February 3, 2018, and the charity itself.
Since 1961, the Quadrille and its umbrella organization the Germanistic Society of America have awarded scholarships to approximately 600 outstanding American and German students. Through their commitment to learn and perform the dance, the Quadrille dancers contribute to the charitable cause. They also join a very international and close-knit network of current and former Quadrille dancers and have the opportunity to form lifelong friendships. Volunteers do not need previous dance skills.
