National League of Junior Cotillions
The McKinney Chapter is proud to offer the Pre-Cotillion, Junior Cotillion, and High School Cotillion programs teaching self-confidence, poise, character, and ethical behavior to the young people in the area. Our mission is to act and learn to treat others with honor, dignity, and respect for better relationships with our family, friends, and business associates later in life and to learn to practice ballroom dance.
