Etiquette Lessons

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.

Holidays are Approaching!!!

As we start to see Halloween decorations popping up, you know the other holidays aren't far behind. It is a perfect time of year to remind our children (and ourselves) the importance of manners and being respectful of others.  

As your children go trick or treating, remind them to say "Please" and "Thank You", accept the treat given to them graciously, smile and use good eye contact (if the costume allows that!)

Thanksgiving is the time to remember how fortunate we are to have family and friends and show gratitude. It's a great time to have your children reflect on their "Top 5" things to be thankful for and share those with each other. This is also an opportunity to reach out to those who need a friend.

Take these lessons right into the holiday season.  I always learned it is more important to give than to receive.  Make it part of your holidays to share this message with your children.  By focus on making others happy during the holidays, our children may see that the gift of gratitude is the best gift of all!

I will share these ideas and more etiquette goodies with children that attend the Holdiay Boot Camps in November. Call me to find out more.
