The final ball is available to ALL students. However, our 6th-8th graders will have the added bonus of the Austin Cotillion's "Dinner And A Show" experience.


This five-course catered meal takes place just before the final ball. Your 6th - 8th grader will have the unique opportunity to practice all they have learned while they share a formal dinner with fellow classmates.

During the dinner your student will have the unique experience of being entertained by master sleight-of-hand magicians. This is something your student is sure to talk about for years to come.


If you would like to join your 6th - 8th grader for dinner, you may purchase additional dinner tickets for $50.00 / person.

Dance Curriculum

Dancing is a social activity that requires interpersonal as well as physical grace. Students will learn how to be a considerate and thoughtful dance partner in order to ensure a wonderful experience before, during, and after each dance. Partner dancing is an important skill as it teaches your student cooperation, respect, and teamwork. 

While there are many social dances, we focus on the most popular such as Waltz, Swing, Rumba, Merengue, and many others. We also teach non-partner / line dances that your student will enjoy doing at school dances, weddings, or other social events.

Class Curriculum

In addition to the social dance instruction, your children will also learn the following important life skills. These concepts are taught in a fun and engaging manner that guarantees your child will remember them and understand why they are so important in everyday life.

Many of our students register for both Fall and Spring sessions, This allows us to reinforce key concepts while expanding on others.
