Etiquette Iowa offers cotillion programs in the central Iowa area.

Our programs are 6 weeks and end with a five course dinner/dance. Our etiquette lessons are taught by Etiquette Iowa and our dance lessons are taught by a professional dancer. We feel it is important your students learn these skills from experts in each field. Call now to inquire about your school or organization.
