Cotillion courses begin Sunday in Eagle

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE, Colorado – Classes for the first Eagle Valley Cotillion begin Sunday. These classes, which teach social skills, manners and dance education, will be held at Brush Creek Elementary on opening night and at the Brush Creek Pavilion for the remaining classes. The program is taught by Jon D. Williams Cotillions, a 60-year-old, Denver-based company that offers social skills instruction across the United States.

The four-week course provides a positive and inviting atmosphere for students to put on their best attire and acquire skills they won’t learn in a classroom, from first impressions and dining etiquette to courtesy toward others and finding the confidence to ask for a dance.

Recent studies by Harvard University, The Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Institute have all led to the same conclusion: 85 percent of an individual’s success in getting, keeping and advancing in a position depends on their interpersonal skills.

Classes are organized by 4th and 5th grade students, and 6th through 8th grade students.
