Social dancing? Me? No way!
You’ll be surprised that so many of your friends are signing up to learn partner dancing and etiquette skills. The goal of the Cotillion program is to help you feel at ease and possess grace and self-assurance in a variety of social situations. Your future of attending school dances, parties, proms, weddings and graduations is just starting to begin…start off on the “right foot”!
Dance instruction will include the Swing, Fox Trot, Tango, Waltz and more. Party etiquette is integrated into the program. Students learn how to ask for and accept a dance, and escort a partner to and from the dance floor.
SOCIAL ETIQUETTE CLASS
Students will review table manners, practice introductions and conversation starters that are useful in a variety of social situations. A light buffet will be served to facilitate instruction.
A memorable Cotillion Ball concludes the course in the Embassy Suites Hotel’s main ballroom featuring a 16-piece orchestra and a light refreshment buffet.

Pick up will be monitored by the recreation staff and parent volunteers. When class is held at other locations (social etiquette and the cotillion ball) and pickup times are varied, students must be picked up inside the facility.
There is a late pick up fee of $15 for every ten minutes of lateness, per child.
Parents may request to be a chaperone. A maximum of four chaperones will be assigned each week. Chaperones assist with attendance, maintaining order and monitoring the parking lot after class. The Recreation staff will contact you prior to the session starting to confirm the date(s) you have been selected to chaperone.
Please Note: If you agree to chaperone it is very important to the integrity of our program that you attend on your assigned night.
