In a world where kindness, courtesy, and respect are often overlooked, the Douglas County Cotillion is recognized as a leader in educating young people in the art of social skills and dance education.

Those with well-developed social skills have a tangible advantage in virtually every aspect of their lives. These skills empower young people to feel comfortable with themselves and others, communicate more effectively, and set a leadership example in school, work opportunities, or any social situation, promoting personal growth, confidence, and character.

Dance breaks down inhibitions, teaches physical respect, develops confidence, establishes teamwork and cooperation, reinforces non-verbal and verbal communication, and teaches the students how to appropriately interact with the opposite gender in a structured and healthy environment.

Douglas County Cotillion classes are led by an exceptional staff of instructors who not only teach at primary and secondary school levels but also at university, business, and corporate levels.
