The Gollatz Cotillion is by private invitation. The program is a modern Cotillion and manners class with updated instruction to captivate a child’s attention offered to boys and girls third through ninth grade. During the Cotillion class the children are taught good table manners; learn core values and social skills. The older, advanced students are challenged with additional instruction suited to their age all in a fun atmosphere. 


The format of the Gollatz Cotillion is to mimic “real life” scenarios so a child will be prepared to attend a family dinner, a formal reception, a social gathering or just simply how to introduce themselves to someone  with confidence. The Gollatz Cotillion does not consider itself a “dance class” although Cotillion dances will be taught (swing, cha-cha, fox-trot and other fun dances) to complete the social training. Cotillion should be a training base for a child to learn and practice social skills that will benefit them their entire lifetime. Your child will enjoy and have fun at the Gollatz Cotillion! 


Listed are a Few of the Many Manners Instructed During the Season 

How to begin and continue a conversation ~ Direct eye contact while speaking to someone ~ How to write a thank you note ~ How to give a fun toast in front of a crowd ~ How to be a thoughtful guest while attending a function ~ Using a fork and knife correctly and cutting of food items  ~ How to appropriately thank someone ~ Proper sitting and standing posture ~ Learning where each food utensil is located at a place setting (simple or elegant) ~  How to hold and use each utensil.
