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 older, more mature student will enjoy the Senior Club with Life Skills for Success learning and practicing vital skills to prepare a young person for success.
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!

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.
