     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. During the Cotillion class (grades third through sixth) the children are taught good table manners; learn core values and social skills 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 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 Taught Throughout the Year

The handshake (social/business) ~ Conversation ~ Direct eye contact ~ Thank you notes ~ Cell phone and gadgets do’s and don’ts  Netiquette ~ How to give a fun and  fabulous toast ~ How to be a thoughtful guest ~ Correct  usage of a fork and knife ~ How to thank someone ~ Proper posture ~ Dining skills ~ How to set the table correctly and so much more.

The Gollatz Cotillion is a modern, updated “social skills” series of classes 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.

A family does not need to be a member of the Mulholland Tennis Club for their child to attend the Gollatz events. Parents are always welcome to remain and observe the Cotillion class if appropriately dressed in business casual attire. It is asked that siblings be with a parent and conversations during the Cotillion 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.
