COTILLIONS

Traditional:
   The COTILLION is the ballroom dancing presentation, performed by the COURT.   Typically made of three songs, 2 mins. each.  Ballroom dancing includes the waltz (always!), cha-cha, salsa, swing, tango, foxtrot, or mambo.   This usually happens after dinner, when the food has settled.



Alteration:
   There could be as many COTILLIONs as you want, but keep timing in mind!  Besides the ballroom dancing, extra dancing could be modern hip-hop or lyrical performances.  If modern performances are considered, think about the audience and whether it would truly be appreciated.
