Cotillion Dance Club presents 9th Annual Black and White Ball-all residents welcome to attend

Rob Spade

Season’s Greetings, One and All!

The Cotillion Dance Club would like to welcome all dance lovers to join us at our ninth annual Black and White Ball on Saturday, January 13, 2018. This will be a formal affair. The Swingtips, featuring Kregg Barentine and Paul Maranto, will be presenting a themed performance in the style of a showband. The Swingtips were a regular performing act at the Atlantic Dance Hall on Disney’s BoardWalk Resort at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Please read their bio on our website – they are terrific! Be sure to mark your calendars. Guest seating will undoubtedly be limited, so register early.

Members and their guests had a wonderful time at our season’s second dance, “A Sparkling Soiree.” The food was great, and the band was terrific. The Messengers, with vocals by Bob and Mari Messenger, accented the theme of an old-fashioned town center with a traditional lighted gazebo in the middle of a holiday season celebration.

Just in time to warm up those happy feet is our next group dance lesson featuring the Foxtrot. Be sure to mark your calendar for January 12 at 10:00 a.m. in the Sun Lakes clubhouse Mirror Room. This room is located at 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd. All residents of the Sun Lakes communities are welcome to attend our club’s group dance lessons. Please visit our website or contact us for more information about lesson availability, dates, private lesson discounts, directions and other services.

The chef is preparing special hors d’oeuvres served with champagne, and there will be instrumental background music for the reception. Featured dinner items include a traditional Caesar salad; entrees are Moroccan lamb lollipop with au jus or macadamia-crusted chicken with hunter sauce, both served with potatoes dauphinoise and medley of baby carrots and asparagus, with the chef’s special lava cake framing the delectable menu. The entrees were selected from Chef Lilli’s most “liked” selections from previous seasons.
