Press Release


CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- The National League of Junior Cotillions (NLJC), a program of etiquette, character education and social dance training for middle school students, has announced plans to reestablish its national program in Lincoln County.

Says Charles Winters, President of the National League of Junior Cotillions, “We will be selecting a director for a local chapter who will receive complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion.” The organization currently has directors operating hundreds of chapters in 30 states. Says Winters, “This program is making a positive impact on students across the nation and we are delighted to know that more young people in this area will have the opportunity for this vital training.”

The purpose of the NLJC program is to give students instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Students actively learn courtesies through a creative method employing role playing, skits, and games. Standard ballroom and line dancing is taught using nationally approved top 40 music.

In addition to the usual courtesies connected with dancing and etiquette, character instruction is also provided regarding the following: honor, respect, ethics, sportsmanship, acknowledgments of gifts, behavior at cultural and civic events, correspondence, inter-action in groups, introductions, paying and receiving compliments, receiving lines, table manners, instructional dinners, electronic etiquette, cell phone courtesy, and many other areas of social conduct.

The program, with headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, was established in 1979 and has licensed local cotillions nationwide. The cotillion includes monthly classes plus a Holly Ball and Spring Ball, and instructional three, five, and seven course dinners. Says Winters, “The program has met with equal success in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapolis, Houston, and in small communities across the country. We believe it will be an important addition to the training of young people in this area.”

Applications or nominations for cotillion director are currently being received. For additional information call 1-800-633-7947, visit our award winning website at www.nljc.com, or email to cotillions@nljc.com.
