The Social Class, a cotillion and etiquette class for young people in the Marietta community, had its holiday dance The Peppermint Twist two weeks ago. Separate dances were conducted for seventh and eighth-graders at the beautifully decorated corporate offices of Traton Homes on Kennesaw Avenue. One-hundred ten students attended. Parents, grandparents and siblings gathered to take pictures and watch a few dances.

The evening began with students penciling in their dance cards. They enjoyed the company of six different dance partners throughout the evening.

Two dance contests were held for each grade. The winners are Emmie Hall and Samuel DeMarco in the 7th Grade Waltz; Sicily Kolbeck and Luke Teverino in the 8th Grade Waltz; Olivia Brumbelow and Miller Williams in the 7th Grade Shag; and Morgan Hines and Tucker Tapp for 8th Grade Shag.

Johnny Walker of Johnny Walker Photography was in attendance capturing the special memories. Attendees enjoyed a spread of festive party food, including delectable Oreo truffles made by Angie Halliburton and delicious cookies made by Ann Cox.
