Spring Cotillion Class Update

It was no accident that Spring Cotillion and Spring Junior Cotillion began yesterday, March 20th, which was the first official day of spring. I always love when a new class begins because I never know what to expect. The anticipation excites me. Now, I know exactly what I’ll teach, but each class contributes and extracts information differently, resulting in different results each time. The two spring classes are no different.This is the first semester I’ve offered classes for the younger grades (Kindergartern through 4th), and I have been so impressed by their attentiveness and desire to learn. It solidifies the thought that incorporating etiquette into their lives at a younger age will make it more understood and second nature for the students.

The Junior Cotillion class actually started out with more male students than female. However, the dancing portion quickly resolved that. One boy got knocked in the nose during an unfortunate Waltz spin, and another boy had his foot stomped on by accident. With two down, we were to a one-to-one ratio. 😉

Each class is not without comical times and ups and downs. At the end, though, I feel confident that the parents who enrolled their children in these classes will know they’ve gained knowledge and lifeskills that will set them apart from their peers. With that, I’m happy. 🙂

Spring 2018 Junior Cotillion Update

Hi, everyone! It’s been a few days since I’ve updated on Junior Cotillion and Cotillion. Junior Cotillion is now FULL. I am so thrilled to have this class at capacity in a matter of WEEKS. We’re still 5 1/2 weeks from starting, and your trust in me to teach your kiddos means more to me than I can say.

I still have around four spots for Cotillion. They are $75 each if you sign up and pay on or before February 28th. We begin on Tuesday, March 20th, and the class will be from 5:30-6:30, which follows Junior Cotillion. Both classes are at The Oaks Bed and Breakfast on Oak Ave. in Sulphur Springs, Texas. We meet for four weeks total, and at the end of the fourth class, we have a small presentations ceremony for the families to attend. It always means so much to the students when they get to show off their skills.

This year I’m also hosting Debutante, which I am beyond excited about. This is a dream of mine come true. Debutante is for young ladies in grades 9th through 12th. The cost is $100 per student. I try to keep my prices extremely affordable for families. I was blown away at the thousands it costs students in nearby cities. These skills will last them a lifetime, and I want to reinforce the fact that etiquette is for everyone. I appreciate your continued support so much.
