We take great pride in our distinguished alumni, including two United States Presidential families who have been personally instructed by the Gollatz Cotillion. Our fun and engaging social skills series is designed to teach children the importance of manners, courtesy, and communication. Our experienced instructors work closely with each student to build confidence and develop strong social skills that will last a lifetime. 


**The Gollatz Cotillion can accommodate most dietary restrictions however, some dietary restrictions are life threatening. It is asked of the families with children who

have severe food restrictions that you provide their personal food items as this guarantees the safety and well - being of your child. Please contact the Cotillion office to discuss food/meal accommodations. **
