What is a Cotillion? Webster's definition is Cotillion - (ki til' yen) 1. French for the word petticoat. 2. A society dance with elaborate rituals and proscribed behavior. We at Club Etiquette Jr. Cotillion define Cotillion as: Cotillion:- (ki til' yen) 1. Fun experience for your child. 2. Lifetime skills for your child. 3. A quintessential rite of passage.

Through our Jr. Cotillion program, you can give your child the opportunity to develop a lifetime of social graces. When your child enters what could be an awkward phase of life, such as that first co-ed dance, date, or gathering, he/she has the opportunity to enter it with grace, poise, and confidence because of their participation in our Jr. Cotillion program.

At Club Etiquette, we know your time is valuable. That is why we have developed a full service social learning experience which includes catering and elegant rewards on the last night. We are happy to offer you an all inclusive program which does not limit the number of children accepted per school. Our early bird registration allows you to save money, too!

Club Etiquette Jr. Cotillion is now offering the same high standards of instruction that you have come to expect from Club Etiquette for the past several years. With an emphasis on etiquette, social graces, and proper dance techniques for males and females, we have coordinated a program that will prepare your child with sophisticated social skills for a variety of situations for   years to come. With both theme nights and a catered awards ceremony and dance social upon graduation, Jr. Cotillion promises to be fun, too!

It was developed to fill requests from past students and the requests from many Memorial Area families. We are excited that services have been so lovingly accepted by many Houston Schools such as Memorial Middle, Duchesne, Spring Forest Middle, Awty International, The Village School, and Grace Presbyterian, The Regis School, and Spring Branch Middle School to name a few. Local parents have said the nicest things. Click here for testimonials.

If you have a friend that you would like to participate in one of our Jr. Cotillions, please feel free to give them our number, and we will send them what they need to begin. If you have another sibling in the Jr. Cotillion age range, call us, and we will share with you how to begin a group.

We look forward to another year of educational fun with you and your child!
