NORMAN — The National League of Junior Cotillions has announced the appointment of Loren Kruger as the new director for the Cleveland County Chapter in Oklahoma.
The National League of Junior Cotillions program — which features character education, etiquette and social dance training for fifth-through eighth-grade students — includes six classes and one ball over an eight-month period.
The purpose of the National League of Junior Cotillions program is to give students instruction in ballroom dance and practice in the social courtesies needed for better relationships with their family and friends.
Students actively learn life skills through a creative method employing role-playing, skits and games.
