The Darien Cotillion brings together people from Fairfield and Westchester Counties who share a love of ballroom dancing. The group gathers to enjoy six evenings a year of black-tie dining and dancing. The season begins in October and ends in June with an event typically every six or seven weeks. Events are held at private clubs offering excellent cuisine and sizable dance floors. The evenings start with an hour of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before dancing begins. Live music is provided by 4-6 piece professional bands.
