Cotillion to establish locally

By Staff | Jul 8, 2011

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The National League of Junior Cotillion, 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 Jefferson County.

The organization currently has directors operating hundreds of chapters in 34 states.

The purpose of the NLJC 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.

The program, with headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., was established in 1979 and has licensed local cotillions nationwide.

Applications or nominations for cotillion director are currently being received.
