Hundreds of young Russian cadets showed glitter and glamor when they arrived for the annual cadet ball at the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow.
St Andrew Hall was staged by the Russian Federal Protection Service on Wednesday evening in a sea of gold.
Dressed to impress in their best style, girls traded in the parade grounds for the ballroom when they found themselves in a rainbow of sweeping pastel ball gowns, which they combined in abundance with white gloves and diamonds.
In the meantime, their well-dressed dance partners maintained the tradition in full military uniform in an attempt to impress the prestigious event.

Drummers from the orchestra of the high school No 1770 gave a big performance, while the young cadets smiled radiantly while they danced together.
Russian soldiers of tomorrow, dressed in their glittering ball gowns, were seized by their male counterparts in the event that the country’s hope takes a step back in time.
For many at the ball, it was a fairytale opportunity to experience the grandeur of the Tsarist traditions of Russia. With its string quartets, traditional dance routines and patriotic speeches, the event goes back to a bygone era.
The annual ball is an exuberant display of discipline, splendor and splendor while girls in wavy dresses whirl across the dance floor, impeccably dressed young men stand in order along the hall and teachers bark orders, trying to get their students to keep time.

In the meantime, backstage, lipstick is applied and her frantically braided, girls push themselves up to floor-length mirrors, trying to make the perfect selfie.
Last year the ball was held at the appropriate location of the Victory Museum dedicated to the Great Patriotic War.
Girls twisted between the historical artifacts in lively satin dresses, while the male military students pulled them at the waist while performing classical Russian dance.
They paid tribute to the lush dances of Russia by Tsar Nicholas II during the Debutante-style event, while wearing pastel-colored dresses similar to those of the Romanov family.
But behind the scenes, the girls hurry to fix their hair in front of their large entrance and are not allowed to wear red lipsticks because the teachers of the group tell the cadets that they must be “girlish, not feminine.”
More than 1,800 cadets attended the impressive event the year before – and it was held for two consecutive years in Manezh’s central exhibition space in Moscow.
