Dance Lessons

Traditional beginning ballroom dancing: waltz, foxtrot, samba, etc.

In dance, there is an emphasis on a strong core, good posture and proper body alignment. Those dance skills translate to every day living in terms of focus, flexibility and balance. An experienced dancing professional will teach the dance lessons.

Manners in Motion Dinner: For an additional fee, your child can join their instructor for a Manners in Motion Dinner at an area restaurant. Your child will need to call in their RSVP for the dinner, dress appropriately and put all of their new-found dining skills into action.

Each child will receive a graduation certificate upon successful completion of the Cotillion.


Etiquette in an Election Year

It seems that when candidates should be showing their best features,  campaigns and tactics often bring out the worst from political parties.  Our opinions are shared in our homes with our children overhearing our conversations, the TV advertisements, etc.  Children in turn may want to share those ideas that they hear from home or on TV.  Let's take the time to educate our children on how to process this information and when it is appropriate to discuss politics in general. Even if adults don't use the best and most respectful manners during an election, we can use this opportunity to teach children about courtesy, respect, and freedom of opinion.
