Cotillion Dance Club Presents “All Doll’d Up Formal Soiree”

Rob Spade

The ballroom was beautifully decorated in an autumn theme for November’s “Dancing Leaves of Autumn Gala” formal dance. The dinner was scrumptious and the service prompt and courteous. The music was fabulous, performed by Route 66 with special vocals from Kathy Bradford. Everyone had a great time! The champagne reception preceding the dance provides an opportunity to interact with guests, to take photos, and to enjoy the hors d’oeuvres, champagne, and the live instrumental music.

On Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020, the Cotillion Dance Club will present the “All Doll’d Up Formal Soiree.” This dinner dance will be held at the Cottonwood San Tan Ballroom in Sun Lakes. The dance is a formal affair (tux for the gentlemen and gown for the ladies). The reception begins at 5:45 p.m. with live instrumental music provided by Diana Perez and will feature champagne, antipasti platter, and teriyaki beef satay hors d’oeuvres.

The dinner begins at 6:45 p.m. and will feature a salad of mixed spring greens served with ranch or honey mustard dressing on the side and warm rolls and butter. The entrée selections are herb-crusted roast pork loin (center cut pork loin herb crusted and roasted) or shrimp scampi (shrimp sautéed in butter, capers, fresh parsley, and garlic), both served with wild rice pilaf and broccoli and chocolate layer cake for dessert. The dietary meal is beef brisket served with wild rice pilaf and broccoli, with flourless chocolate cake for dessert.

We will be featuring live music by the Sentimental Breeze in a special configuration that includes a male vocalist. The band begins their first of three dance sets at 7 p.m.
