Junior Cotillion Premiere 8th Grade

The Eighth Grade Cotillion Program or "Premiere Program" builds upon the etiquette skills learned in Junior Cotillion and gives the students the opportunity to go out into the community and practice! For those students who have not yet participated in Cotillion, we will hold a free crash course class in etiquette and ballroom dance in September. 

In the program itself, our eighth grade students will participate in such activities as a reception with hors d'oeuvres followed by a professional theatre production. Other events include a restaurant outing to practice ordering from a menu,  classroom time with international and business etiquette guidelines, and a Grand Ball with a five course dinner. This program will meet in October, November,  January, February, and March.

All classes are held at Belmont Country Club.

High School Grades 9-12

The High School Cotillion Program presents a diversified collection of events to allow the students to experience demanding social situations. Before our children begin college life and enter into the real business world, we want to prepare them for job interviews, networking, meeting and dining with people they would like to impress in a positive way. We hold most of our events within Loudoun County and are proud of the fact that we support a variety of local businesses including restaurants, theatre groups, and non-profit organizations. Some of the events have included networking in the business world, how to prepare for job interviews, a night with the Loudoun Symphony, how to dress for success, and a Moonlight Dinner Cruise on the Potomac! Our events will change from year to year, however we will always refresh and hone the skills of dining, networking, polite conversation and what it means to be a person of honor, dignity and respect. 

(For those students who have not yet participated in Cotillion, we will hold a free crash course class in etiquette and ballroom dance in early Fall.)

Debutante Girls 16-18

Our Debutante program (young ladies ages 16-18) is designed to promote leadership skills and provide them with a show stopping bullet point for their resumes. We want our Debutantes to find friends for life as they serve the community and each other. As they plan and orchestrate projects such as The Senior Citizen Ball, 5K for Breast Cancer, gathering clothing for the Good Shepherd Alliance they will practice public speaking and organizational and leadership skills. We want the Debutantes to step out of their comfort zone, to value work and think positively!  Workshops, social activities, and community service events will culminate in a dinner and Debutante Ball, during which Debutantes will be introduced individually and perform a choreographed waltz (with their fathers) and fox trot (with their escorts).
