These dances have NOTHING to do with class. I went to one and the kids were practically having sex on the dance floor. There was so much grinding and carrying on i was embarrassed to be there. I wouldnt send my child to one for nothin.
They are well chaperoned and behave like ladies and gentlemen. You must not have been to the cotillion dances in Lexington that many Clark County kids are invited to participate in regardless of their financial situations. If you want to see sex on the dance floor, just go to the middle school dances here in Clark County. I have chaperoned at both.

I figured that collitions were no longer held in this area. I have always heard of these debutante balls in areas such as Boston and New York that had old money. These were to introduce girls to society and only the rich or super rich were allowed to attend as they were considered the only society that mattered. Sounds like the ones around here are not real thing, to charge someone for it and then only allow four dances. Personally I wouldn't want my child to attend as I think they are just a waste of time and money.

My child was invited each year and each year we politely declined. Not being mean...these are facts. These are either popular or desperately want to be popular individuals. No in between. And I'm talking about the parents, not the children. It's pathetic. And yes, the Fayette Co. Dance is the one to which we were invited. There is " dirty dancing" and drinking in the bathrooms and sneaking alcohol in other cups. Any parent who sends their child is irresponsible....and usually trying to keep their social position in Winchester or desperately seeking to again one.

No one really cares about all them rich, snotty preps. Their parents want trophy children and sometimes the only way they can do it, is to buy them. I think it's sad that their children can't be themselves. They have to be so fake. Then they grow into adults and act the same way.

I think it is terrific that teens in this area have the opportunity to take advantage of cotillion and are exposed to how a lady and gentlemen are supposed to dress and act at a nice dance. The kids that I know who go to cotillion are excited to be involved and look forward to the dances......even though some won't admit it!

Exposure to the niceties of life doesn't hurt anyone, and it can help them later on when they become adults and have to act like civilized adults with good manners.

No one really answered the question about the ages that they participate. I know some kids that go and they don't make the best of grades so I don't know how that could be a criteria. I just need to know who to contact to get the right info.

I don't know where u get some parents will go to any length to buy their child popularity, like I said in my previous post, my daughter was invited when she was in middle school, we are not wealthy, however she does make good grades, we didn't ask to be invited, I had never even heard of it before she was invited, she did not attend because we could not afford it, I have heard several of my daughters friends talk about how bad they were & that it was more like a breaking out as slut/wh#re party that the girls/guys were practically making out at them, they are all seniors now but that was the talk back when they were in middle school.

I wasn't talking to you. You chose not to let your daughter attend. I am saying that some people will go to any lengths to make their child popular. This isn't anything new. Regardless, Cotillion is for the more more privileged

My kids attended the Cotillion Club in Lexington--Both my son and daughter had a great time and met lots of kids from the surrounding counties--it is a good opportunity for the 8th graders. They are still friends with a lot of people they met. It is well chaperoned-I would recommend it! Let me know if you want the info. It is open to all schools in Fayette and surrounding counties. Money has nothing to do with it;from what I saw they were all well behaved, and still managed to have a great time.
