Out of the Lecture Hall and on to the Dance Floor

At the RWTH Gala Ball it is clear that dancing is a trend again and no longer just for boring squares or dance school freaks. Both members of the University and students twirl in long dresses and elegant vestments across the dance floor. RWTH celebrates the most beautiful end to the year in the decorated ballroom of the Eurogress.

Dance Rounds and Show Performances

The ball is opened by the RWTH Aachen administration. Dance pairs twirl and move to classic ballroom dance and Latin American rythyms. Performances by high-class dance pairs, dance formations, and acrobatic performances ensure a diverse and packed evening program.

Discussions in a Celebratory Atomosphere

Students, professors, employees, alumni, and sponsors of the University together on the dance floor – no event is manages to bring so many different people together on a single evening. The Gala Ball has earned its reputation as the RWTH Aachen's most identifiable event.

The pictures made during the entrance are downloadable in the picture galery.
