Cotillion Dance Club prepares for 25th anniversary Black and White Ball

Robert and Doris Rouleau entering the San Tan Ballroom for the first dance of this season, titled “Celebrating Our New Venue in Sequins and Bow Ties.” According to Bob and Doris, as well as everyone else who attended, the meal and decor were terrific. The band was simply wonderful; the Jukebox 6 Band led by Tammie Stockley had everyone dancing. The Cotillion guests were dancing to the last song and wanted more. What a great way to start off the new season.

The Cotillion Dance Club wants to thank the Cottonwood banquet staff, especially Andy Warren, for the best event we have had in years. We are very happy about the move to Cottonwood. We also want to thank Antonio (Tony) Lomeli from Fred Astaire Dance Studio for leading our group dance lesson the day before the dance. Tony taught the Rumba to the couples who attended. They were all seen using their newfound dance routines during the dance. Great fun!

The 25th Anniversary Cotillion Black and White Ball on January 12, 2019, will feature music by the SwingTips. The reception will feature champagne, imported and domestic cheese with crackers and crab Rangoon hors d’oeuvres. The dinner menu will feature a salad of mixed spring greens served with blue cheese or raspberry vinaigrette dressing on the side and warm rolls and butter. The entrée selections are Beef Oscar with a béarnaise and crab meat sauce or puff pastry salmon with herb cream sauce, both served with Potato Au Gratin and asparagus, and for dessert a decadent chocolate layer cake. The dietary meal is beef brisket with roasted red potatoes and asparagus with flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Invitations have been emailed to the membership. Please RSVP via email.

Next group dance lesson will be on Friday, January 11, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. Tony is scheduled to teach again. This lesson will focus on the foxtrot. The lesson will be held in the Sun Lakes Country Club, Mirror Room. All residents of the Sun Lakes communities are welcome to attend our club’s group dance lessons.
