Social Dance and Etiquette Classes for 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Students

Our mission is to prepare your child for success with contemporary etiquette. Today’s manners are no longer about silver spoons and white gloves. Instead, they provide the correct protocol for everyday situations in order to succeed in our society. We’re ripping off the white gloves and diving into a more practical approach to etiquette for the twenty-first century. Join the next generation of manners!

​Class One: Skillful Conversationalist

This class offers the practical rules for engaging in and continuing a polite conversation, as well as learning active listening skills. Students will practice introducing themselves, how to greet and introduce someone, apply compliments and how to gracefully exit a conversation. In addition, returning students will receive important tips and tools for developing interview skills that they will use for their very first interview and beyond. 

Class Two: Phone/Internet Manners & Safety

​Parents learn quickly that phones and computers are like magnets to children. With so much access to the Internet, children have greater access to communication than ever before. This class will teach students how to politely and safely use phones/texting, good judgment on social media sites, and how to deal with cyberbullying.

Class Three: Party Manners

​Even at the most casual parties, we must always remember to apply behavior rules that will warrant a repeat invitation. Whether hosting a party or attending one, good manners must be displayed to make guests feel more at ease. Instruction during this class will cover the importance of thank you notes, gift giving, invitations, hosting a party and the proper attire for every occasion.

​Class Four: Table Manners

​Confidence in dining situations frees one from worrying about making mistakes, whether at home or dining out. Students will develop positive dining habits by learning everything from the basic rules of dining and polite meal-time conversations to restaurant behavior, and much more.

Holly Ball

​Holly Ball is a semi-formal event where each child will bring a parent or adult as their “date” to accompany them. This event offers a wonderful chance for students to share with their guest the skills they have learned in class. Dance instruction, drink and hors d'oeuvres are provided for an evening of fun, social festivities.

Dinner Dance

​Dancing and dining is a fun and interactive-based delivery system for teaching positive social skills. This activity is offered as the last event of the Junior Cotillion season, where students will combine their social and dining skills knowledge during a four-course meal and a night full of dancing with fellow classmates.
