I am excited to introduce a new program starting in January for “mums” and daughters. If you read my post, “Long Time No Talk,” you’ll know I’ve been re-evaluating my initial concept after talking with moms (and dads too!) about what will work best for families who are interested in enrolling their daughters in a La Fleur Academy program.
The Mother-Daughter Intensive is a sampler class that provides an introduction to etiquette and personal style. It’s a four-week class that meets on Sunday afternoons. For families that are interested in advanced classes following this Intensive…stay tuned! The best part? It will be team-taught by me and my mom! (The picture to the left captures one of our most “intense” moments…the first time we saw each other on my wedding day!) I hope that this will be a great bonding experience not only for us, but for the mothers and daughters who participate. It was inspired by the experiences my mom and I had when I went to finishing school and later became a pageant contestant. We had more than a few heart-to-heart discussions during those times. The lessons that came out of those conversations still inform my decisions today.
If you are interested in helping your daughter make confident first impressions, define an age-appropriate sense of style, learn the basics of hospitality and the fundamental principles of good etiquette, then this class is for you! Here are the details:
- Sunday afternoons from 2-4 p.m.
- January 9, 16, 23 and 30.
- Party to celebrate completion of the Intensive on February 6, time TBD
- Intensive will be taught in the Nomad Art Gallery on 1013 Jones Street in downtown Omaha
- Cost for a Mother-Daughter duo: $350. Cost for a Mother-Daughter trio: $475.
