Cotillion Group Feedback

When do I sign up for the 8th grade class? I don't want to miss out! Didn't even think I would like Cotillion. Parent's made me come. I am pretty glad they did :)

I have never done the waltz before. It was a little wierd but extremely fun once I got the hang of it. I tried it with my parents when I got home!

 I loved doing the shag AND limbo! I kept tripping over my poodle skirt but won the "best costume" contest so whatever!

I loved the contests that you had at the end of the second class. Will we be doing more of those in the next classes?
