Cotillion – French word for formal ball – combines fundraising for Opera Omaha with lessons in social skills “disguised” as a dance class for sixth graders throughout Omaha. A popular tradition through the 1960’s, Cotillion died out in the 1970’s. The revival of Cotillion began in 1983 and has been popular ever since. This will be the 29th consecutive season for the Opera Omaha Cotillion.
The primary purpose of each Cotillion class is to provide the opportunity for each student to mature socially. Students learn the art of dining in a formal setting, communicating, being a proper guest as well as a host/hostess, and ballroom dancing. The emphasis will be on helping students learn how to meet new people and how to get along with others; the learning of dance steps is incidental.
Opera Omaha will be holding chorus auditions on Tuesday, October 21, from 5:00 – 7:00pm.
You must be at least 18 years old to audition.
Prospective members will be assigned a time slot. Please prepare 2 selections (not to exceed 5 minutes in total):
*Arias, arts songs, or church solos are all acceptable as audition pieces. Please provide printed music as an accompanist will be available at no cost.
Audtions will be held in the Opera Omaha Rehearsal Hall, 1850 Farnam Street, Omaha NE (entrance on Farnam Street).
