Conferment ceremony ball and rehearsals

The conferment ceremony ball, held on Friday evening after the banquet, is an impressive event among the events of the conferment ceremony festivities. In the ball, the newly conferred doctors dance, for example, Polonaise and other festive dances.  Participation in the ball is not mandatory, but highly recommended. The more there are dancers, the more impressive and festive the ball will be. The dances and choreography will be rehearsed in advance  to make sure that the dances are performed well and that the participants can enjoy this impressive and fun event.

Preliminary enrollment for the dance rehearsals and the Ball is possible with the conferment registration form. More information on dance rehearsals and attending the ball will be sent later to primarily enrolled persons. It is possible to join the Ball and the rehearsals with your own companion or you may request a student marshal as your dancing partner.
