Worthington Cotillion sincerely regrets to announce we will not be hosting classes for the 2022 season. 

The following factors have influenced this decision:

1)     The Worthington United Methodist Church’s COVID-19 policy does not allow for indoor events of our size. We will not be able to meet their social distancing requirement.

2)     Children under 12 have not had an opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.

3) We have considered other venues, modifications to the class sizes, etc. However, other options are not conducive  logistically or financially at this time.

We TRULY appreciate all of you who have reached out with interest in and support of the program!

We TRULY hope to be back in action for a 2023 Worthington Cotillion season!

Worthington Cotillion Director

My son, about to embark on interviews has a better understanding of looking polished, makes direct eye contact and shakes hands with most adults and is more comfortable in those once dreaded “button pants”, and can tie a tie worthy of a future stock broker.

They are more comfortable dancing at school dances, family weddings, even a talent show.

It’s always lovely, well put together and a memory they will have forever. Thanks for all you do to enrich their lives!

All those Worthington Cotillion classes and Etiquette classes served my son well at last weekend's Homecoming dinner and dance! Thanks, Worthington Cotillion!

I watched both of my kids and so many of their friends grow in confidence each week. They realized through some discomfort comes growth.

Since Cotillion my children have experienced other uncomfortable environments and each time I see more poise.

My daughter understands asking others questions about themselves, she no longer acts goofy to mask her discomfort and realizes fun can be had in any attire.

For any parents (or grandparents) on the fence about this opportunity...go for it!! In a perfect world, this would be school curriculum! Move over Common Core for some life-skill training that's fun and useful.

I’m in awe each week as I watch these kids interact with others throughout our community, laughing, dancing and sharing a lifelong memory. So thanks Worthington Cotillion for giving my kids an experience, not a dance lesson, not a etiquette lesson but an experience and in that a fun memory.

I loved Worthington Cotillion and remember everything I learned! I am so glad that my child gets to participate in these instructional classes too!
