The Greene PTA proudly hosts Fall Cotillion Dance Classes, open to all Greene Middle School students. Students will have a blast learning ballroom and contemporary dance under the instruction of Mr. Barry Woodruff of Woodruff Dance Studios.
Students will learn dance steps in the waltz, fox trot, swing, and the cha-cha. Students will also be given instruction in social etiquette – how to shake hands, introduce themselves to others, seat a partner, and get his or her refreshments.
Classes are on Tuesday evenings: 7:30-8:30pm, usually beginning in early September – end of October in the MPR. Please look at our Google calendar for exact dates/times. Parents take turns to chaperone: for safety reasons, 2 parents minimum are required per class.
