Debutante Procession

The entrance and dance of the young ladies and gentlemen of the debutante procession is one of the highlights of each year's Philharmonic Ball.


Registration to dance the opening is possible beginning in September online at the Tanzschule Elmayer. Please give us your birthdates, address, telephone number, height and e-mail address. In October you will receive a written invitation to a dance audition which will take place on a weekend in November at the Elmayer School of Dance.
