Junior Cotillion Year III (Premiere)
The Junior Cotillion Year III (Premiere) program is designed for 8th grade students. Most Year III Premiere students have completed the Year I and/or Year II programs. However, the completion of Year I and/or Year II is not a pre-requisite to register for Year III Premiere. Year III students will build upon curriculum learned in Year I and Year II while learning new concepts and more advanced dance steps. The curriculum will continue to provide instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them, give them thorough training in standard ballroom dance, and to provide opportunities to practice and enjoy these skills at memorable parties, balls, dinners, and events, complete with decorations, refreshments, favors and prizes.
Classes allow students the opportunity to put into practice, everything they have learned in the Year I and Year II programs. The curriculum is designed to provide real world application to include cultural events/outings at a Japanese restaurant and theaters, as well as classes at the Country Club. Classes and cultural outings will focus on interviewing skills, manners in public places, dining skills, escorting partners, good sportsmanship, and occasions to socialize and dance with classmates. Dance instruction includes the introduction of the Texas Two Step, new steps for the Foxtrot, East Coast Swing, Cha-Cha, and Waltz. Classes, cultural outings, and the Black & White Ball will provide students with an opportunity to practice the skills, etiquette, and dance that they have been learning in a wonderful, exciting social situation.
The season will consist of three ninety-minute classes, three cultural events/outings and a Black & White Ball. The registration fee for the 2023-2024 season is $500. The season begins in September and concludes in March. Classes will meet for 90 minutes on a Sunday at Stonebridge Ranch Country Club. Cultural outings will typically be hosted on a Sunday, with schedule & location to be determined. The Black & White Ball will be hosted at the Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel.
