Students who are eligible to become class assistants have either:
- completed two years in junior cotillion

Cotillion volunteer hours make a nice addition to your college application!
What a Junior Cotillion Assistant Does:
- Assistants help set up before class, teach students how to enter class, assist taking attendance, demonstrate dance steps and etiquette skills during class, monitor students during class, refreshment time and exiting at the end of class.
- Assist with one class per month, arriving 30 minutes prior to class and staying until all supplies are packed after class – usually 15 minutes (approximately a 4-hour commitment each month).
- Assistants must remember at all times that they are in an instructor’s role, part of the teaching team and conduct themselves accordingly.
What a Junior Cotillion Assistant Receives:
- Advanced training in ballroom dance.
- Great leadership opportunity.
- Community service opportunity.
There is no charge for the assistant program,
- Assistants are asked to find another qualified substitute if they must miss their assigned class.
- All assistants are asked to review curriculum each month prior to class.
- As an assistant you must dress appropriately to all functions. Since we are setting the example, we are expected to be neat and well groomed.
- Please discuss this information with your parents. If you are interested in becoming an assistant, please fill out the application.
- Training information will be mailed in early July with the training session to be held in mid August.
