Thanks to fairytale stories about peasants becoming princesses or the many Disney movies where the young girls are able to dress up in beautiful gowns and dance around happily, many young girls fantasize about being the “belle of the ball.” For many girls just the idea of dressing in a pretty dress and attending a ball in itself is a dream. Not too many girls will ever be able to attend such a graceful social event.
However, in the upper echelons of society, there are still balls that take place. For many, the idea of a ball seems outdated and nearly dead in tradition but in places like the southern United States such balls are still continued and allows members from the upper class to showcase their daughters or debutants. Originally a way to introduce daughters of marrying age into fine society, it still works as a coming out or coming of age party. And debutant balls also work now in many cases as charity balls. With guests paying for tickets to participate in the ball, they raise money to donate to whatever the chosen charity may be.
