Burgess Cotillion Celebrates its 30th Season

Since 1989, Burgess Cotillion has offered cotillion classes to Long Beach’s youth, teaching both basic ballroom dancing and manners.

But Burgess Cotillion is all about fun. When do you usually dance? At parties, right? Dancing is meant to be fun. That’s why Bobby Burgess describes each month’s cotillion as “a big party!” Bobby always hated the idea of associating dancing with something you dread. Making the nights fun and something kids truly enjoy is what separates Burgess Cotillion from other children’s programs in the cotillion category.

Burgess Cotillion invites your child to attend a FREE class on Jan. 14. No prior experience is required or necessary. The January theme is “Boot-Scootin’ Boogie,” their popular country-western dance.

“Levis and boots welcome,” Bobby Burgess said. “We’ll be line dancing and doing the Virginia reel square dance!”

Also, in their 30th year, Bobby is introducing a new “gentleman” in charge. His son Robert will be taking over the “manners and etiquette” segment of the meeting. This Jan. 14, his subject will be cell phone manners.

Families who have thought about putting their children in cotillion are encouraged to take advantage of this free class by contacting or (323) 874-7393.

If you decide that you’d like to join the once-a-month class for the rest of the season, you are welcome to! The class is held at The Grand - Catalina Ballroom and there are classes available for third through 12th grade. Call ahead to find out specific class information and have a “boot-scootin’” time at the boogie!
