The 6th/7th grade program is $250.  Class sizes are limited.

We have modified our program to meet Colorado’s Safer at Home guidelines.  Students will still work through all the usual curriculum; it will just look a little different than our 2019 class.

One important change that affects registration: Class size is smaller.   Valley country club follows CDC guidelines for distancing.  Our activities are adjusted to follow those guidelines.  We hope to keep the dates as listed, but appreciate your flexibility if state restrictions lead to changes in schedule.  

Instruction Overview

Each class includes instruction in etiquette, dance and refreshments.  The March class is the exception, with a tutorial 5 course meal focusing on table etiquette.

Etiquette Workbooks

Workbooks are given to students at the first class. Each month, a Polite and Proper in Public Challenge encourages them to practice the skills they learned in class.

Dress Code

Dress Code is an important aspect teaching respect for each other, for the host/ hostess and the shared values of our culture.

Ladies wear dresses or skirts of a modest length. Bare shoulder should be covered with a wrap. Pants, gauchos, leggings, etc. are not appropriate. (white gloves are optional)

Gentlemen wear traditional suits or sport coat and tie. Both ladies and gentlemen wear dress shoes appropriate for dancing (no athletic shoes, flip-flops or backless shoes). 

The Graduation Ball is semi-formal.
