All About Us

An Experience Like No Other

The Capital Cotillion Club, Inc. is a social club that provides formal dinner-dances for members and guests at country clubs and other venues in the Washington D.C. area.  You have to be a member or a member-guest to attend our events,


In 1962 a group of single people who shared a beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, were looking for some type of social activity for the winter months and they formed a club to hold black-tie dances on Friday evenings. The first dance was held October 19, 1962, in a rented Washington, D.C. ballroom. Dance locations soon broadened to include embassies, private clubs, and area hotels. Over the years, the Club expanded from five to eight dinner-dances per year and from an all-singles group to a mixed group of couples and singles.

 

Today, the Club is an incorporated organization focusing on elegance and excellence in ballroom dancing and enjoyable social dining.

    They are not long, the weeping and the laughter, Love and desire and hate; I think they have no portion in us after We pass the gate. They are not long, the days of wine and roses: Out of a misty dream Our path emerges for a while, then closes Within a dream.
