TRA­DI­TION

Ju­nior Assem­bly and Cotil­lion cel­e­brate red car­pet sea­son fi­nale at Mar-a-Lago

Palm Beach Daily News - - OPINION -

Imag­ine a grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in the pres­i­dent’s gilded and fres­coed home, with din­ner and danc­ing — but no swel­ter­ing caps and gowns. That’s how it was for the kids of the Palm Beach Ju­nior Assem­bly and Cotil­lion, which closed the 2016-17 sea­son with its an­nual Red Car­pet Din­ner Dance.

The event took place May 10 at The Mar-a-Lago Club.

The Ju­nior Assem­bly of­fers dance in­struc­tion and eti­quette classes dur­ing the aca­demic year to stu­dents from kinder­garten through fifth grade. The Cotil­lion, orig­i­nally a pro­gram of the Ju­nior League, does the same for stu­dents in grades six through eight. The two pro­grams merged three years ago.

The 2017-18 sea­son, which marks the assem­bly’s 70th year, will be­gin Oct. 11 with a Hal­loween-theme Mas­quer­ade Ball at the Beach Club.
