Loudoun Cotillion’s Debutantes have led six service projects during the 2017 season that wraps up with a formal ball Friday.
A chapter of the National League of Junior Cotillions, the organization features etiquette and social dance programs but also emphasizes community and leadership.
This year’s service projects began in July with the annual Senior Ball at the Carver Center. Debutantes assisted with preparation and joined seniors to dance, play games, and share conversation. Other Debutante-led projects included making T-shirt dresses for the Sioux Eagle Butte Reservation, creating a video for a young women’s gathering, making baked goods and skating for The Tree of Life Charity, gathering food for Loudoun Hunger Relief, reading to preschoolers, and holding a bake sale for Friends of Homeless Animals.
At Friday’s Presentation Ball, debutantes will wear white ball gowns and perform a series of dances choreographed by Director Jean Ann Michie. Following a three-course meal, debutantes have a second opportunity to showcase their ballroom dance skills accompanied by a live orchestra.
