Social Arts Classes teach social protocol and dances. Roll playing and hands-on activities, give each student the opportunity to practice. This not only makes class time active, engaging and fun but also ensures that information is truly learned. Classes demystify the what and why of manners and etiquette and look to consideration, respect and honesty for answers about how to thrive in society.
