National League of Junior Cotillions
Cabarrus County Chapter
The National League of Junior Cotillion Cabarrus Chapter will once again provide Cabarrus County Students an opportunity to participate in the longtime tradition of etiquette, manners and social dance. Students in grades 5th through 8th will be empowered with confidence as they learn to maneuver the social graces needed in todays world.
Classes are held once a month and include first impressions, telephone etiquette, proper seating, table manners, social media etiquette, greeting and shaking hands reception manners as well as training to assist them in being the best person they can be. Cotillion Handbooks are given out the first class and are used throughout the program to reinforce skills taught. Cotilllion Challenges are an opportunity to practice skills learned at home with his/her family.
We strive to keep the classes equal boys to girls to assure the social dance instruction is fun for all. Refreshments are served at each class and special food selections are served at the Winter Ball as well as the Grand Spring Ball.
