Fredericksburg Area Service League
making a difference for children
The 2013-2014 season is open for registration. Send your $25.00 registration fee to reserve your spot for next fall. This year our waiting list was long, and there were several disappointed students who had to sit out the season. Don’t wait until the last minute - reserve your place now!
Our new small group etiquette classes were a huge hit last year. This year we will continue to develop additional content for our returning 7th and 8th graders. More information will be included in your registration packets that will go out this summer.
Junior Cotillion of Fredericksburg is one of Fredericksburg Area Service League's oldest and most loved programs, offering middle school aged children instruction in basic etiquette and ballroom dance. Our purpose is to teach children how to treat others with dignity, grace, and respect for better relationships with family, friends and associates.
Classes start in October 2013 at the Strictly Ballroom Dance Studio, 125 Olde Greenwich Drive, Suite 190, off of Lafayette Boulevard in Fredericksburg. Junior Cotillion classes provide lessons in everyday and formal manners and popular ballroom dance in six 90-minute classes and two party dances for a total of eight sessions. The Holly Ball, a semi-formal dance, allows students to share their Cotillion experience with a parent (or other relative or family friend) "date". The formal dinner dance, marking the end of the Junior Cotillion season, is a student only event that allows students to practice the social graces and dance skills they have acquired. The Fredericksburg Country Club provides a formal setting, including a four course dinner followed by a dance card style dance.
Melissa and Michael Scott, our dance instructors, have 18 years experience instructing ballroom dance. Since opening Strictly Ballroom Dance Studio in 2002, they have earned numerous top studio and teaching awards from major dance organizations. Four-time National Professional Open "American Smooth" finalists, the Scotts are members of the National Dance Council of America. Mr. Scott is certified through the Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance in London, England. In 2004, Mr. Scott was cotillion dance instructor for Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School. He has judged both the Senior Olympic Dance Competition and most recently, a "Dancing with the Stars" preliminary held in Richmond.
The cost is $225, and $210 for siblings and returning students. The additional $25 registration fee will reserve your place. The balance is due before the first class.
