  • "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."
