Opera Omaha Guild Cotillion

For 30 years, the Opera Omaha Guild has held Cotillion classes for area sixth graders. The primary purpose of each class is to provide the opportunity for each student to mature socially. Students learn the art of dining in a formal setting, communication, being a proper guest as well as a host/hostess, and ballroom dancing. Cotillion classes are held during the fall each year and registration begins in the summer.
