Burgess Cotillion invites you and your friends to try out cotillion at one of our dances. If cotillion is not for you, there is no fee obligation for the class. We hope you will want to join and become a regular registered member.

Our March dance is always a "guest" night. The class is complimentary to all first-timers who've never experienced cotillion. We hope the fun evening will encourage you to join us for our next season.

In addition to ballroom dance instruction, manners and etiquette will be emphasized. Come join us for some fun!
