Cotillion Plans to Establish in Franklin County

By Staff
The National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC), a program of etiquette, character education and social dance training for middle and junior high school students, has announced plans to establish its national program in Franklin County.
"We will be selecting a director for a local chapter who will receive complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion," Anne Colvin Winters, NLJC National Director, said.
The organization currently has directors operating in over 445 chapters in 33 states. The program is making a positive impact on students across the nation and we are delighted to know that more young people in this area will have the opportunity for this training, Winters said.
The purpose of the National League of Junior Cotillions' program is to give students instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Students actively learn courtesies through a creative method employing role playing, skits and games. Standard ballroom and line dancing is taught using nationally approved top 40 music.
In addition to the ususal courtesies connected with dancing and etiquette, character instruction is also provided regarding the following areas: honor, respect, ethics, sportsmanship, acknowledgements of gifts, behavior at cultural and civic events, correspondence, inter-action in groups, introductions, paying and receiving compliments, receiving lines, table manners, instructional dinners, telephone courtesy, and many other areas of social conduct.
The cotillion program includes monthly classes, two balls and instruction for three, five and seven course dinners.
"The program has met with equal success in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapolis, Houston, and in small communities across the country. We believe it will be an important addition to the training of young people in this area."
