Registration Opens for the Dallas 2023/24 Season
The Dallas Chapter of the Yellow Rose Junior Cotillion typically begins its season in September of each year. Classes are held on the Second Sunday of each month, from 3 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Each class is limited to 24 boys and girls. We are based at the prestigious Gleneagles Country Club, 5401 W Park Blvd, Plano, TX 75093 with some sessions held at a private residence.
The Season for 2024 will begin in January 24, with a half-day retreat held for workshops normally presented in the fall.
Amidst fine china and fresh flowers, participants master 21st century social graces, learn social dance and prepare for their grand ball. The Christmas Social is in December of each year, with field trips rounding out their interactive year.
Our curriculum is considered best-in-class. And, while the Cotillion teaches the art of the "thank you" letter, dining etiquette, poise, dance and interpersonal skills, we also instruct students on the management of today's modern world issues: bullying, online reputation management, digital etiquette, peer mentorship and cultural/diversity understanding.
Parents value The Yellow Rose Junior Cotillion for the social and practical life lessons we deliver. And children enjoy it for the personal discovery and friendships they develop over the course of the season.
