The Cotillion of Alpharetta Grade 8

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.
