Contemporary Cotillion Camp

Our week long Contemporary Cotillion Camp is held once a year in the summer.  Classes are split into two groups and times, ages 6-11  and ages 12-18.

We meet daily for a week and wear summer casual clothes.  Each day consists of etiquette and dance instruction with a snack time.  The last day will be a catered brunch with dressy attire and a final dance session.
