We are offering a one-time in-person class for children ages 12 to 17 who are fully vaccinated. Please get more details here. All other children's classes are on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time.
If you are interested in a virtual table manners class, I recommend Jennifer Porter with Satsuma Design. She is offering one on December 5, 2021.
Children who have good manners are more likeable, comfortable and confident. But, often, children need to hear from a third party that manners matter in order to start practicing them. Clise Etiquette teaches and reinforces the manners and social skills your children need to succeed socially and, later, professionally. Your children will learn important skills that help them to be poised, polished and polite whether they are interacting online or in-person.

Class Dates and Times:
