Our Season Begins!

As seen on:

Many, many updates for you in this post, so please look for the heading below for information pertaining to your interest or needs.

Please take a minute to check out the fun and exciting updates for the Premiere, High School, students!

Junior Cotillion (5th-8th grades)  

– We still need GIRLS for the 5th grade Oklahoma City classes (I’m amazed at how many young 5th grade boys are chomping at the bit to do Cotillion this year!).
– Depending on the grade and location (Oklahoma City or Edmond) some of our other classes have space for girls or boys.
If you know of a young man or lady who would benefit from knowing how to make a great first impression and feel more confident with his or her social skills, please have their parents contact me so we can enroll them in one of our classes.

If you have a child participating in Junior Cotillion (5th-8th Grade) this season, please refer to your recent email titled “Junior Cotillion Class Details and Information” for your child’s specific class time, location and other details.  
Classes for the Oklahoma City students begin Sunday, September 9 or Sunday, September 16, depending on their class schedule.
The Edmond students will begin September 10 or 11, depending on their class schedule.
Please remember that class details are available on my blog.

Premiere Cotillion (High School)  

Premiere Fall Fling Party:  Please encourage high school students to attend our annual “Fall Fling Party” on Tuesday, October 9.  This is a fun opportunity for students who are interested in participating in the Premiere, High School, program to learn more about Cotillion.  Guests are encouraged to bring a friend to the event as a great way to introduce them to the program.We will have a DJ and dancing. Finger foods and dessert will be served.Dress Code: Business Casual.

Premiere Program:  The Premiere Program begins in January and the class is already filling up, if you are interested in your high school aged child participating, please register him or her soon.  In addition, if you know of anyone interested in this program, please feel free to share this email with them.  The Premiere Program is open to students in 9th-12th grades, previous Cotillion participation is not required.  Details for the Premiere Program, 9th-12th grades, are available online at

Premiere Interview Intensive:  As part of our continued effort to “develop the whole child,” we are excited to continue with our “Interview Intensive” program to instruct students, 10th-12th grades, in the aspects of interaction in interview settings.  We are excited about these efforts to equip the professionals of tomorrow with the manners, etiquette and social skills they will need in the transition from the admission process of the halls of academe, through first job interviews, and on to positions as well respected members of our business and professional communities.To mark the culmination of our training, students will attend a formal reception where they will be paired with an adult who will interview them for 10-15 minutes and then critique them on their performance.  The process will be repeated until each student has had 3-4 interviews and critiques.  We plan to make the interview process fairly challenging and difficult for them, so that later in life, when they are placed in a high-stakes interview situation, they will be able to enter in knowing how to conduct themselves and therefore feel more confident.For details on the Interview Intensive Program for 10th-12th graders, please go to

Space is limited this year for both the Premiere Program and the Premiere Interview Intensive, so please register early.
