Impressions: The Modern Cotillion for a New Generation

South Charlotte Fall 2018 Impressions Class

Teaching children to have self-confidence in social situations, to show respect and kindness to others when in person and online, and to have nice table manners is essential, but let’s face it, teaching these life skills isn’t easy!

Impressions, The Modern Cotillion for a New Generation is a new interactive cotillion type of class that teaches children all of the etiquette, manners, and social skills they need to know, without all of the “old-fashioned" stuff that’s outdated in today’s modern and digital world. 

Through the use of multi-media, games, groups activities and a class party, 5th - 8th graders will learn how to:

  • Have confident greeting and conversation skills.
  • Set the table and have polite table manners before, during and after a meal.
  • Be a polite host and guest.
  • Have nice manners and respect when using a cell phone and social media.
  • Show respect and kindness to their peers and adults.
  • Dance the Waltz.

The final class will culminate in a party for the children to practice their new social skills and dance with each other. 

CLASSES:    Every child will attend all three classes.

DATES:    October 7, October 21, and October 28, 2018.
