The Gollatz Cotillion program is a modern Cotillion and manners class with updated instruction to captivate a child’s attention offered to boys and girls third through tenth grade. During the Cotillion class the children are taught good table manners; learn core values and social skills in a fun atmosphere located at the Morgan Run Country Club. 

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 or social parties 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! 

*The Senior Club with Life Skills is a unique concept for the more mature student. The young adults will lean and practice life skills along with "Cotillion" type dancing in a fun, professional setting.

~ Welcome to the Gollatz Cotillion ~ The Cotillion will commence with the instruction in the art of conversation, eye contact, the hand shake, basic dining skills and Cotillion style dances. Appetizers will be served to the Cotillion students during the class with social instruction. The standard Cotillion attire is required. 

 ~ Thank You Notes, Addressing an Envelope & Dining Skills ~ While having fun, the Cotillion students will learn how to write a thank you note (complete with addressing the envelope) and practicing their skills integrated with  Cotillion style dances. Refreshments will be served as the students enjoy and practice their learned skills. The standard Cotillion attire is required of all Cotillion members.


 ~ The Family Night ~ Grades 3rd - 6th combined from 6:00pm to 7:15pm ~ The Family Night is a special evening intended for both the Cotillion students and their family to participate.

 ~ ​ Social Skills and the Games of Table Concentration ~ The Cotillion participants will be instructed in the correct form of cutting foods using a fork and knife accompanied with the fun games of  “table concentration.” All grades will enjoy Cotillion style dancing.  Appetizers will be served to the Cotillion students. The standard Cotillion attire is required. *Sixth Grade - Additional instruction: The proper usage of chopsticks and their placement.

~ The Gala Dinner and Cotillion Members Dance ~ Grades third through sixth will be combined from: 6:00pm to 7:15pm ~ The Dinner is the Cotillion student's special evening. A buffet dinner will be served to all grade levels which includes dining instruction. *Dinner is served only to the registered students. All students will be separated into appropriate grade combinations at the tables. If tardy, the Cotillion cannot guarantee the child to be placed near “friends” * Due to space availability it is requested that parents "drop-off" their child or remain in the foyer/lounge. 

The Gollatz Cotillion & The Essential Life Skills for Success are a modern, updated “social skills” series for boys and girls in a fun party atmosphere.

The Gollatz Cotillion is honored to have personally instructed two of our United States Presidential families.


 It is not a requirement that a family be a member of the Morgan Run club to attend the Cotillion. Parents are always welcome to remain and observe the Cotillion class if appropriately dressed in business casual attire. It is asked that siblings remain with a parent and conversations during the instruction are kept to a minimum. The Cotillion dancing is fun and will be a portion of the Cotillion however; the Gollatz Cotillion does not consider itself to be a "dance class". The Gollatz Cotillion recognizes learning and practicing social skills integrated with manners are beneficial to a child that will last their lifetime.
