Fourteen young women, elegantly dressed in full-length white gowns, high-heel shoes and long gloves, will walk into Richlin Ballroom tonight on the arms of their tuxedo-clad fathers, grandfathers or family friends. After presenting their mothers with a red rose, they will dance one waltz with their escort and another with a young man of their choosing. After more than six months of workshops on issues that included money management, communication, charm and poise, and many hours of community service projects, these high school students are presenting themselves to society in the 30th annual Debutante Ball, organized by the Black Youth in Action.

As A-List hostesses plan their parties this year, they will have to make do without the help of the 2002 Society Visiting List, better known as "The Blue Book." After 113 years of publishing the names, addresses and debutante parties of the area's upper-crust families, the Blue Book is taking the year off for some much needed rejuvenation. The sturdy blue directory with the cursive gold script, a compendium of information about the long-rooted and socially prominent, hopes to find ways to attract younger subscribers to its pages.

Eva Anderson's Baltimore Dance Theatre gave its all Saturday night at Howard Community College. Despite the small audience, the seven-member troupe, plus two former company members, deftly performed Ms. Anderson's five distinct and stylistically differing works.From the stark modernism of "Chess Game," to the African-influenced movements in "Ceremony," the comedic pantomime of "Br'er Rabbit" and the ballet-inspired figures of the opening work, "Debutante Slouch," Ms. Anderson's versatile company was technically comfortable in a variety of styles.

I had a nice chat this week with the O's official cruise director Ken Nigro, who's in Florida getting ready to lead a group of 200 true blue Orioles fans on the 8th annual Orioles Caribbean Cruise. Nigro and his charges will board the Regal Princess in Fort Lauderdale on Jan. 8 for a weeklong cruise to St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Princess Cays.This is the largest group they've ever had and I would guess that has something to do with the celebrities who'll be sailing with them. Imagine dining with O's players Brady Anderson, Mike Devereaux and Paul Carey; O's hitting coach Greg Biagini; Hall of Fame broadcaster Chuck Thompson; O's assistant general manager Doug Melvin, and former O's Boog Powell and Pat Dobson.

Children's holiday dreams of napping with Sing and Snore Ernie may be a lot more realistic than women's fantasies of a chance to dress up in full gala regalia. The seasonal accumulation of magazines and catalogs is chock-a-block with beaded gowns, velvet opera coats, miles of diamante necklaces and outrageously unpractical dancing shoes. Women look, they dream, but the scenario that would merit all this finery eludes them.Dressed-down parties have become so entrenched on the social scene during the last decade that women have nearly lost the knack of going full-tilt for glamour.

Tradition reigned supreme at the Stouffer Harborplace Hotel on the Friday evening after Thanksgiving, when 14 debutantes in elegant white gowns and elbow-length gloves were presented to members of the Bachelors Cotillon.Dinner parties at clubs like the Mount Vernon and Maryland clubs preceded a gala evening at Stouffer's. The Stouffer's ballroom was transformed into a lovely garden of flowers, and "debs" and their partners danced to the music of the Lester Lanin Orchestra.The Cotillon, founded in the 1790s, became a permanent Monday evening social event in 1871, and is the third oldest such social institution in the country, behind Charleston's Saint Cecilia Ball and the Philadelphia Assembly.
