The Cotillion Group will change the location of its Crabapple Junior Cotillion for its upcoming season.
The organization has announced the Junior Cotillion, an 18-year tradition for Milton area 7th and 8th graders, will move to a new location at the Atlanta National Golf Club in Milton beginning with the 2014 Cotillion season in September.
“We are thrilled to be moving the Crabapple Junior Cotillion to a brand new home this year at the beautiful Atlanta National Golf Club in the heart of Milton,” said Valerie Macdonald, director of The Cotillion Group. “Crabapple Junior Cotillion has been a long-standing tradition in the Milton community. We have had the pleasure to instruct middle school students in self-confidence, etiquette and dancing for 18 years, preparing them with the necessary skills to carry them throughout life.”
The 2014 Crabapple Junior Cotillion season will take place Sundays on Sept. 21, 28, Oct. 5, 19, 26, Nov. 2, 9 and 16 at the Atlanta National Golf Club.
The seventh grade program will meet from 5:20 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the eighth grade program will meet from 7:20 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. The programs include parent socials and other special events.
The attire for girls is Sunday dress, and boys are required to wear coats and ties. Interested participants are invited to register as soon as possible, as there are a limited number of spaces available.
“On behalf of the Atlanta National Golf Club, we are honored to host the Crabapple Junior Cotillion and look forward to meeting the girls and boys and their parents as they continue this time-honored tradition in the Milton community,” said Charlie Moller, general manager of the Atlanta National Golf Club. “The Atlanta National Golf Club embodies tradition and we are excited to offer a world-class facility as the new location for the Cotillion.”
For the 2014 season, Crabapple Junior Cotillion 7th grade participants will learn important social skills, and social media etiquette, as well as lessons in basic ballroom and popular dance styles such as shag, free-style, line and slow dancing.
Eighth grade participants will learn many new dances in the Latin genre, swing and hustle. The eighth grade curriculum also focuses on table manners, how to make a lasting impression during interviews and business dinners and the social graces young ladies and gentlemen will need as they begin to date.
The Cotillion Group offers cotillion programs and social education instruction for 12 cotillions in the Atlanta and Macon, Georgia areas.
