25 debutant couples will have the honor to open the Baltic Ball. Debutant entrance will be staged by the main dance master of the ball - Andrei Chitu - an experienced choreographer and professional dancer from Vienna, who already choreographed the opening of the First Baltic Ball in Riga.
Debutants traditionally have the honor of opening big society balls. Debutants are unmarried young ladies and gentlemen, who have auditioned for the opening ceremony. At the ball ladies must wear white dresses and their partners - black tailcoats. In earlier times, in such a way the brides and grooms were introduced to the society, and this is why all the debutantes are dressed in white which resembles a wedding dress.
Baltic Ball debutants are selected by the Ball Committee in the audition process.
