Pass the Manners, Please

We call it “Pass the Manners, Please.” It’s a fun, informative dinner that covers all the important distinctions in table manners. So as students enjoy a multi-course meal, they are learning all the key skills that define proper dining protocols, including:

  • Taking a seat properly
  • Identifying place settings and glassware
  • Handling utensils and napkins
  • Eating common and unusual foods
  • Passing food around the table
  • Handling unwanted foods
  • Saying thanks and toasting
  • And more!

Our “Pass the Manners, Please” dining skills classes are open to young people in Grades 5–12. We also offer a variety of custom-designed dining skills classes for young adults and adults alike.  Enrollment is limited. Registration is managed on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay. Reserve your spot at our table by registering online today. (Please note that there is a five-day cancellation policy for this program.)

  • "My daughter is extremely shy, and at first, did not want to do Cotillion. But after finding out that all of her friends were doing it, she decided to join and she LOVED it. She is so excited to do it again in the fall. I think it was a very good experience for her and a confidence booster. Thank you for the fun aspect you put into it as well as etiquette."
