Debutantes of the Decades
Debutante Balls, while extant in many different regions prior to 1950 has slowly become extinct in nearly all of America except the South. The South has created a unique tradition around Debutantes and Cotillions (the Debutante balls). Each year, young women are presented in a formal event as a sort of 'coming out into society.' At least, this was the traditional way of seeing things. Perspectives have changed over the years, as have many different aspects of the Debutante culture. Our very own Cleveland-Athens Cotillion, having recently celebrated their 55th Holly Ball, will be exhibiting how their traditions have changed over the years through beautiful gowns, jewelry, and various other items unique to Debutantes. Debutante-related programming will also occur over the course of the exhibit, including ballroom dance lessons.
Exhibit proudly sponsored by the Cleveland-Athens Cotillion
