Etiquette North Dallas is pleased to present: COTILLION NORTH DALLAS
    Kotil-yon. 1766 ad. French - The name of several dances, chiefly of French origin, consisting of a variety of steps.

We do not have classes in yout area at this time.


 


Our Cotillion program offers an extended version of our etiquette classes combined with dance instruction to offer middle school age participants useful information as they move into the more social years of their lives.  Preparation equals confidence and our sessions are designed to create self confidence in all social situations. The programs I teach are always informative, valuable, and of course entertaining. I believe it is critical to engage the participants in my program.  I find that if participants not only learn something, but also have fun at the same time, the benefits will be contagious.  My programs encourage excellence from the very first impression. 


Please contact me directly for more information on bringing this wonderful program to your school or organization!

Dance Lessons

Traditional beginning ballroom dancing: waltz, foxtrot, samba, etc.

In dance, there is an emphasis on a strong core, good posture and proper body alignment. Those dance skills translate to every day living in terms of focus, flexibility and balance. An experienced dancing professional will teach the dance lessons.

Manners in Motion Dinner: For an additional fee, your child can join their instructor for a Manners in Motion Dinner at an area restaurant. Your child will need to call in their RSVP for the dinner, dress appropriately and put all of their new-found dining skills into action.

Each child will receive a graduation certificate upon successful completion of the Cotillion.

Calling Cards, not to be confused with business cards, are well thought out representations of the individual with contact information provided.  Calling cards became popular with the afternoon tea party goers but are now seeing a come back to people as way of making it clear that the contact information is offered in a purely social manner and no business is intended.

Those who might use calling cards would be: retirees, stay at home moms/dads, those with young children (i.e. when dropping your child off at a party, provide the card with your contact info)

I spoke with Katherine Clausen, co-owner of Your Empowered Solutions, for 3 tips to get great results in a short amount of time (during a 30 sec commercial).

1.  Identify a problem only you have the solution for.

2.  Always be very clear in specifically who you would like to be introduced to (specific industry or profession).

3.  Tell the "what" not the "how" of your business.

Follow these tips and always remember that networking is about helping others, not loading up your e-mail distribution list.  Learn more about Katherine at Your Empowered Solutions.
