Leeton’s debutantes have shone and in the wake of Leeton’s latest Catholic Ball the night has been dubbed a “huge success”.
The pairs were dressed to the nines as they danced to two songs choreographed by Paige Purtell.
One of the event’s organisers, Leonie Murphy, said while the group was larger than usual – sitting at 22 – the night went off without a hitch.
“Once again it was a great success. We had a very big group of debs and their partners,” she said.
“Despite that, it all went really well. They all looked lovely on the night.”
Ms Murphy described the two dances as diverse in style. One was a choreographed ballroom-type dance and the other was a medley of three modern songs.
Debutantes were presented to special guest Heather Whittaker.
Ms Murphy said the age-old tradition is one still proving popular in country towns.
“It’s a chance for them to get dressed up and, even in a modern context they can move into society,” she said.
“They’re finishing up at school and about to come out into the world.”
She pointed to the ball as a good fundraiser and social outlet for the Catholic Parish and its community.
