42nd Season of the Jefferson Cotillion (CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19)

  • Jefferson Cotillion First Lesson
    October 11, 2020
    5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
    - Days and times will vary throughout the season. Please see schedule at bottom of registration page.

Please join us for the forty-first season of the Jefferson Cotillion, where sixth through ninth graders are taught traditional, yet current, dance steps, along with dining and dating etiquette.  All of this takes place in a fun, developmentally appropriate atmosphere with certified, masters-level teachers and professional dance instructors.  All Jefferson Cotillion events take place at Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.

All students are welcome and tuition assistance is available.  We also recognize that finding semi-formal clothing for this age group is not easy, so a clothing bank is on-site at The Civility School.  (Donations of gently used semi-formal clothing for 6th through 9th grades are greatly appreciated.)
