Junior Cotillion of Hampton Roads Celebrates 30 Year Anniversary
NEWPORT NEWS, VA - Junior Cotillion of Hampton Roads has been serving area youth since 1985, and is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. Junior Cotillion offers youth in grades five through nine instruction in etiquette and classic and contemporary dancing at their six dance parties per season. Season one begins September 26 in their Newport News location followed by a second season from January to March in Williamsburg.
Interest in Junior Cotillion continues to climb in a time when social graces and positive self-esteem seem to be dwindling, as social media is a way of life for tweens and teens. Students from south Hampton Roads continue to enroll to attend dance parties on the peninsula and graduates often return as role models and to volunteer by encouraging new students. Fifth and sixth graders attend the 6pm session for 75 minutes followed by the older group.
Dates for the Newport News location, Scottish Rite Masonic Center, 65 Saunders Road, are: September 26, October 10 (Fall Ball), October 24 (50's Attire Sock Hop), November 7 (Salute to America - wear red, white, and blue), November 21 Bountiful Harvest (bring canned goods donations), December 5 (Holly Ball), and December 14 (optional holiday luncheon with parents).
Dates in Williamsburg at Historic Triangle Community Services Center, 312 Waller Mill Road are:
January 10- Lets Kick Off the Season, January 24- Salute to the 70's, February 7- Cupid Shuffle (wear something red), February 21- Wonderful World of Disney (come dressed as your favorite Disney character), March 7- Shamrock Shenanigans (please bring canned goods), March 21- Spring Ball (Parents Invited), March 22- Spring Luncheon (Optional).
Our goal is that the social awareness, confidence, and positive self-esteem that are cultivated through these events will last a lifetime. Please call Kay Martin at 868-3319 to register. Junior Cotillion of Hampton Roads will donate $25 to the school of every child who enrolls by September 14.
