The National League of Junior Cotillions™
The National League of Junior Cotillions™ teaches everyday manners, formal etiquette, and basic ballroom dance to students in grades six through eight. The classes meet once a month from September to February and have equal numbers of ladies and gentlemen.
The purpose of the Junior Cotillion program is to give young people instructions and practice in courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Having the knowledge of social skills is important for every child’s success in life. Junior Cotillion provides the instruction that will help your child become a self-confident young lady or gentleman. The rules of etiquette, ethics and manners are designed to make sure everyone knows what to do in social situations so they will not feel uncomfortable.
Classes provide the opportunities to learn and practice new skills in a safe and comfortable environment. Instruction includes introductions, shanking hands, table manners, electronic etiquette, polite conversation, thank you notes, RSVP etiquette, proper seating, refreshment/ reception etiquette, and dance instruction in the foxtrot, waltz, cha cha, and beach shag.
We have chapters in Lantana, Flower Mound, and Southlake. To register you child for the 2018-19 cotillion season, go to www.nljc.com/chapter/DentonTarrantCounties and select the chapter you are interested in. Classes are limited and fill quickly so don’t miss out.
