I signed Paula up for Cotillion classes. The teacher has been offering these classes for 30+ years....teaching etiquette to 6th graders.
Nic said "no way" he would do this when he's in 6th grade, which makes me more appreciative of Paula for accepting to go to these classes. These kids come from all over SD, so she doesn't know any of the kids. I can see how shy and awkward she feels, but that is the whole point of these classes.....so that she can overcome that awkwardness/shyness....be confident and poised :)
They dance in every class...teaching the boys to walk up to girls and ask for a dance. They practice having conversations with each other, make eye contact. Future classes will cover dining etiquette too.
What I hope Paula would get out of these classes is to be socially gracious and confident!
