Junior Cotillion is a 3-4 year program. Year One is a mix of etiquette and dance instruction including the cha cha, fox trot, beach shag and line dances. The social and character education components of the program include introductions and proper rising, acknowledgment of gifts, correspondence and the RSVP, participating in group settings, polite conversation, paying and receiving compliments, sports etiquette, manners in the home, rules of proper telephone courtesy, basic table manners and many other areas of social behavior. The highlight of the season is the final Grand Ball.
Most Year One students will be 5th grade with some 6th grade.
