Because we contracted with our venues at least 9 months in advance, it is very difficult to reschedule an event in a reasonable time period. Therefore, we avoid cancellations. However, should there be an emergency beyond our control, parents will receive a text. Also, an update will be posted on the "Class News" page of our website at least one hour before the scheduled event. For a quick link, CLICK HERE .
Classes are held once a month for one and a half hours. Dr. David H. Vawter, Assistant Professor of Education at Winthrop University, says that studies show "the adolescent mind is more likely to retain skills which are learned over a longer period of time in a repetitive manner."
We encourage parents to participate in at least one aspect of the season. Most of them register as Chaperons because no dancing or etiquette knowledge is required. Others take pictures of the classes, create scrapbooks, alphabetize name tags, decorate for events, or stuff envelopes.
Our gatherings are formal events, which require appropriate clothing. This standard sets the tone so members will be comfortable when attending special events, such as proms, award ceremonies or job interviews later in life. For classes, ladies wear modest dresses or skirts, white gloves and dress shoes. Gentlemen wear khaki pants, dress shirts, ties, navy or dark blazers and dress shoes.
For the Instructional Ball (Nov) and the Instructional Dinner (Nov), members wear formal attire to celebrate the midpoint of the season. Ladies wear a holiday dress while gentlemen wear a WHITE dress shirt, coat, khaki pants, tie and dress shoes.
For our Grand Ball (March), ladies wear ALL WHITE dresses and white gloves.
Gentlemen wear black tuxedos.
