Debutantes and Escorts
Join us as a debutante at the St. Andrew’s Ball which will be held December 1, 2017!
You will be introduced to Scottish traditions such as: helping those in need and volunteering at a women's shelter. You and your escort will learn the Scottish Waltz (4 lessons, normally the Wednesday night) which you will perform the night of the ball for the pleasure of the Ball guests. You will be also be invited to the Débutante’s Tea by the wife of the president of the St. Andrew’s Society while your escort will be invited to the Escorts’ Luncheon by the president of the St. Andrew’s Society. At the Debutantes’ Cocktail Reception (the Wednesday prior to the ball) you will be presented to the Ball Guest of Honour and to the members of the St. Andrew’s Society.
The number of debutantes will be limited to eight, so apply early.
