The Cotillion Dance Club presented its membership and their guests with a “Moon Dance Soirée” in the Oakwood ballroom on November 5. This event was memorable in every respect. The VIP reception featured champagne with delicious hors d’oeuvres (I especially liked the pork and vegetable pot stickers with a soy glaze) and wonderful mood setting instrumental music by Bob Messinger. This was followed by a scrumptious dinner and great service with attention to every detail. Then the evening was taken to a waltz infused dance enlivened by the Messingers Show Band. It was truly the best event of the season.

The ballroom was decorated to enhance the expectation of a great evening of food, dancing and fellowship as members and their guests entered. The revised registration process was simple and leisurely.

Our next event is the 8th annual Black and White Ball on January 14 in the Oakwood Ballroom. The VIP reception begins at 5:45 p.m. The Sonoran Serenade Big Band will be providing the instrumental background music for the reception. There will be champagne and hors d’oeuvres prepared and served by the Oakwood staff. Our dance band music will be provided by the Sonoran Serenade. This will be the third appearance of Sonoran Serenade. All their previous performances have been spectacular. They are creating a number of new arrangements just for us. This traditional 19 piece band will play many swing band favorites and has great vocalists! This will be a formal dinner dance. Come early and enjoy the company and atmosphere. Members and guests are welcome.

The new Oakwood banquet chef has promised to make the upcoming meal one to remember. He is planning to serve his hors d’oeuvre specialties at the VIP reception. Two of his dinner menu selections include grilled salmon and an herb rubbed casino style roast of beef. The chef’s featured dessert will be a chocolate tuxedo cake—yummy!

The group dance lesson for the upcoming dinner dance is scheduled for Friday, January 13 at 10:00 a.m. in the Oakwood Ballroom. Fred Astaire will be providing instructors for the Foxtrot. Members and guests are welcome.
