What is Fortnightly?

Fortnightly provides 7th and 8th graders an opportunity to have fun with their friends while learning different dances and etiquette. Students are taught fun dance steps by trained dance professionals and have the opportunity to practice more formal social etiquette such as receiving lines, how to escort a partner, as well as other important social skills. Students are introduced to current dance styles as well.   Light snacks and drinks will be provided. 

 

 

Behavior Expectations

Each child is expected to participate in the evenings events and to come dressed appropriately (see below). During these sessions the children will be instructed on dances as well as taught social etiquette. It is essential that the children offer our instructors and chaperones their best social behavior.

 

Fortnightly is a wonderful opportunity to practice grace and courtesy. If acts of misconduct occur, the student will be warned and the parents will be notified. If the behavior continues, the student will be expelled from Fortnightly. Parents will be called to pick up their child, and no refund will be given if the student is expelled.

 

Please do not allow your child to bring any gum with them to Fortnightly.
