The Cotillion Group of Alpharetta Grade 8, the second year in the program, includes instruction in the following social skills:
- How to make good first impressions
- Interviewing skills
- Dress for success
- Communication one-on-one
- Consider the dating scene (walking through the initial date)
- Table Manners
- Restaurant Etiquette
The dancing taught will advance some of the more popular steps from the first year program as well as introduce, among others, some 70’s Hustle, Latin, and a major Swing/Jitterbug routine in its six week class duration. Lasting one and one-half hours on consecutive weeks, the final class allows the students to practice their skills at a Dinner Dance for the more formal evening classes or at an informally catered event sponsored by the after-school parent-committee.
The Cotillion of Alpharetta is made up of Taylor Road, Webb Bridge, King's Ridge and area private school students. Classes are held Sunday evenings at The Metropolitan Club.
