Gubernatorial Ball

Maybe you are surprised, it’s the 21st century now, what balls am I speaking about? Moreover, we live in Ulyanovsk. But even in our city today it’s possible to dance at a ball. And recently I’ve had a chance to visit one.

Everything started unexpectedly for me. I got my tickets for the ball only four days before it. I was in despair: no dress, no shoes and even no partner! But I decided not to give up. Fortunately, one of my friends agreed to accompany me to the ball. The first problem was solved. Those four days almost drove me crazy. Don’t get me wrong, they were pleasant but tiring cares. I had to think about my clothes and hairdo. And then we were given lessons on classical ball dancing under the direction of the best choreographers of our city. Three or four hours of waltz and polka in the evening… I returned home at 8 and was really exhausted.

Finally, the day of the ball came. I was rather nervous thinking about how I was looking. I had my hair done, got dressed and my partner assured me that I was looking nice. The event was really solemn. The ballroom was full of girls in beautiful dresses, mostly white, accompanied by boys in suits.  We danced all the dances we had been taught before. Then there was a concert for the guests. And the culmination was at the end of the party when the best pairs were chosen.


No word can express my feelings and emotions. The whole atmosphere was so magical and enchanting. I felt as though I were in the 19th century. It was an overwhelming experience that I can hardly forget.
