"Where Manners Still Matter"

The Junior Assembly Cotillion season includes seven dances beginning in late September and concluding with our Cupid’s Ball dances in early February.

We enroll students from public, private and parochial schools all over the Richmond metropolitan area. No middle school group is ever separated. The exception to this is Moody and Wilder Middle; those students attend cotillion with their home-based middle school.  We are very proud of the diversity of our cotillion and try to include as many children as possible.

We reach families through a recruiting network within schools but not from within the school administration itself. Participation is by invitation only so we can ensure an equal number of boys and girls at each dance. If you are interested in involving your child or a group of students from your child’s school or sports team with Junior Assembly Cotillion, please contact info@juniorassemblycotillion.com.

“I will treasure the dance with my son forever. I was surprised how he was actually leading me. Thank you for a very special evening and a memory we will cherish always.”
