Curtis said she studied dance in New York City as a young girl and has been dancing for many years.
Curtis said: “It’s (Cotillion) a really great tradition. I am delighted they asked me to do this.”
“Not a lot of towns still do this, so we are very lucky to have this tradition,” Curtis continued.
“It’s unique in America right now,” Dutkowsky said. “It gives them self esteem and a skill they can use later in life.”
Dutkowsky said the students are in wonderful hands with Curtis.
“I feel very comfortable with leaving them with Alma,” Dutkowsky said. “She’ll do great and the kids will do great.”
Dutkowsky said he doesn’t know how he will be involved with dance in the future. The doctor said he is considering teaching adults for fundraisers for people with disabilities, but no matter what he will definitely be involved with dance in some way.
