With the increasing news regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we understand that you may have questions concerning the upcoming San Dieguito Cotillion Dances. We would like to share with you what we are doing to protect the health, well-being and safety of our organization. Thank you for your support and understanding during a very challenging situation.

We are closely monitoring information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure that we are adopting the most up-to-date preventative protocols and guidelines.

In response to CDC, National guidelines, and California guidelines, we will be postponing our March 28, 2020 class to ensure the safety of our members, instructors and volunteers, which is our highest mission.
The San Dieguito Cotillion will continue to monitor the updates from the CDC as to evaluate and adjust our schedule to protect our members, instructors and volunteers without compromising our service standards. We will let you know as soon as possible when we are able to reschedule the March 28th dance.

Welcome to the San Dieguito Cotillion

Dance Lessons and Etiquette for Children and Young Adults

The Patronesses of the San Dieguito Cotillion are pleased to welcome you to San Diego’s most enduring dancing and etiquette program. Since 1955, the San Dieguito Cotillion has been teaching children between 5th and 12th grade. This is a multi-year program to educate children into self-confident, respectful and poised adults.

At cotillion, young ladies and gentlemen learn valuable skills that will enhance their everyday lives and give them the ability to carry themselves with grace and dignity across a dance floor and in formal and informal social settings. Children are enrolled from all over San Diego County with classes held conveniently at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
