Kind Words...

The best compliment we receive is the referral of our services from families to families.  Here are some of the kind words that students and parents have said:

“Cotillion has been a wonderful experience for my very shy son, Tyler.  We just returned from his grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary party.  Tyler used all his Cotillion skills, including dancing.  Thank you so much for working with him.  He has much more confidence now that he has been through your program!”  (Brenda, parent of a third-year student)

“If I had known that Cotillion was going to be this much fun, I would not have spent my summer complaining!”  (Michael, 6th Grade Participant)

“My daughter was getting an award tonight at her middle school.  I just wanted to tell you that Cotillion was absolutely worth it!  She sat there with her ankles crossed and hands in her lap and looked like a lady!  Unfortunately, many girls were not.  I was SO proud that my daughter presented herself well, and she learned it all at Cotillion!”  (Vicki, parent of a second-year student)

“We are so excited to be part of Cotillion, again (with our second daughter now old enough to join), and appreciate all you do.” (Rhonda and Scott Patterson, Former FMSD School Board Member)

“The McCarters provide a great product. They do a great job interacting with and teaching the students.” (Jessica, parent of a second-year gentleman)

“Celia and Phillip are able to make an important step in our children's lives fun and interesting!” (Thomas, parent of a first-year lady)

“Classic Cotillion has excellent communication; stays focused on its mission; very age-appropriate.” (Mary, parent of a first-year lady)

“I never thought I would say this - and you have it in writing - Thank God you put me in Cotillion!”  (From Quinn, a former student written to his mother, who insisted that he share this text with the McCarters)

“You are learning skills that you will use later in life.  So, it’s necessary.”  (JJ, former second-year gentleman)

“Classic Cotillion introduces students to experiences which provide a foundation for grown-up experiences they may encounter in his/her adult life.” (Jill and Mike, parent of a fourth-year lady)
