The cotillion, or French country dance was popular in 19 th century Europe and America. It was a courtly version of an English country dance which lead to the quadrille, and in the United States, the square dance. It is interesting that the word cotillion in French means petticoat, with many to peek out as the women float around the room in their elegant dresses. The dance takes on different forms and is interspersed with changes that are guided by a caller. You may find yourself dancing with four or in couples or in circles or chains.
Again, this year Victorian Days will kick off with a Friday evening cotillion. Come and enjoy the fun at the Red Frame Mill (lower level) at 10 Hardwick Street in historic Belvidere, NJ.
Music will be provided by The Lost Ramblers who will also lead us through the everchanging dance steps. Beverages and finger foods will be provided.
Dress in your best Victorian attire (not required but highly recommended) and join us for an evening of merriment as together we whorl across the dance floor!
