    Cavalier and escort both can be translated as кавалер or партнёр

    эскорт = escort
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?

    Какой толк от богатства если ты не счастлив.

    You can't use кавалер for a woman. As for "партнёр" you can use it for a woman only in the sense "business partner" but for a dance floor the word is "партнёрша".
    Edit: you can use "кавалер" for a woman only in "кавалер ордена ...."

    You can name a woman "партнёр" if saying "сексуальный партнёр". Only so.

    Say something like: Ты хочешь меня сопровождать на свадьбе?
    Do you want to escort me to the marriage (dancing implied)

    we kid you not, Mordan. It translates as "knigget of the order" as in "knigget of the order of the garter" ("кавалер ордена подвязки").

    Не могла бы ты побыть моей партнёршей для танцев на свадьбе?

    Or briefly:

    Не хочешь ли потанцевать со мной на свадьбе?

    The second version is only better if you know each other well or are at least somewhat familiar. The first version sounds more formal. The best version depends on your situation and what you would like to say. Is she invited to the wedding regardless of whether she is going to dance with you or not? If she is going to be an escort, not just dance with you (a wedding is not synonymous to a ball, isn't it?), you could say: Не хочешь ли пойти со мной на свадьбу? Dancing is implied. Or you could add: Будешь моей партнёршей для танцев.

    By the way: вы на "ты" или на "вы"? The difference is the same as in French.
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it
