The 3rd Annual Ball for The National League of Debutante Cotillions Loudoun Chapter will be held Friday Nov. 22 at Belmont Country Club as six young ladies, high school juniors and seniors, will be introduced to society. The Debutantes and their Marshalls, will demonstrate their figure presentation and Debutante Cotillion Waltz, choreographed by director Jean Ann Michie of Purcellville, for invited guests. The Debutantes, in their beautiful white formal gowns and gloves, will waltz to the music of the 15-piece Northern Lights Dance Orchestra.
According to Jean Ann Michie, Director of NLJC, “The Loudoun Debutante is a young lady who is gracious, poised, well groomed, and cultured. She is at the threshold of adulthood and uses this time in her life to refine, as well as define, herself. She is aware of all those around her, and puts her thoughts and good will into action. She chooses to be an influence for good and to offer gentility to a world that stands in great need.”
The program is totally dedicated to the idea of giving service here in Loudoun County and the development of leadership skills in our Debutantes. We did practice manners and etiquette while we served and enjoyed one another’s company. However, we focused on service. ”
Throughout the year, the Debutantes collected teen clothes to benefit the Tree of Life Ministries, the Debutantes read children’s books to daycare kids at Loudoun Valley Community Center, organized and sorted items at Hopes Treasures to help the homeless and planned a Senior Ball for local senior citizens at the Carver Center in Purcellville.
