The planned Jan. 8, 2022, and Feb. 12, 2022, dances have been cancelled. The member/guest surveys on Nov. 8, 2021, and again on Dec. 8, 2021, indicated an insufficient attendance forecast for the upcoming January and February events. Forty percent of polled members and guests indicated they “would attend the January dance based on information available at this time.” We need a minimum of 65% to fund a dance.
A new survey to determine the attendance forecast for the Saturday, March 12, dance will be sent out on Jan. 2. If you do not receive an email containing the survey, you can respond regarding your attendance intentions using either our email address, [email protected], or, call/text at 602-529-6829. Please respond before Jan. 12.
Cotillion Dance Club plans to present a dinner dance on Saturday, March 12, to be held at the Cottonwood Santan Ballroom in Sun Lakes. Be sure to mark your calendars.
This dinner dance will be a formal affair beginning with a Champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception, featuring live instrumental music. The ballroom will be decorated for the ‘Top Hats and Cocktails Soiree’ themed dance. We are looking forward to continued prompt and courteous service from the Cottonwood staff.
The dance music for next season will be provided by the Rags Allen Band. You can also enjoy this band at a more casual setting at the upcoming Sunday Night Dance Club events (www.sunlakes-sundaydanceclub.com).
Any level of dance experience is welcome at our events. Most couples just want to be together on the dance floor, all dressed up listening to live romantic music. But if you want to learn a new dance step or just brush up, we offer group lessons on the Friday before the dance at 10 a.m. until noon in the Sun Lakes Clubhouse Mirror Room (Sun Lakes Phase I). Our thanks go out to Lisa Bianco at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Chandler for her sponsorship of our dance club. These lessons are fun, taught by professional instructors, and are not intimidating at all. Try it, you’ll like it! The cost is $5 per person—pay at the door when you arrive.
