Tiaras, Tea Parties and Charm, Oh My!
What do you get when you mix sugar and spice and everything nice with a dash of social graces and a royal, dress-up tea party? A princess with social confidence! At least twice a month, little girls ranging in ages from 4-6 & 7-11 congregate in Southern Oregon for Princess and etiquette workshops through Gracious Me Academy™ with Anna Minter, a.k.a. Ms. Annie. Since 2001, Ms. Annie has been working on developing a manners curriculum that incorporates hands-on learning infused with fun activities, thus removing the nagging factor so often associated with learning manners. As each girl proudly emerges in front of family and friends for her moment to shine, it is evident that the Gracious Me Academy ™ curriculum provides an opportunity to gain poise and confidence in social situations.
The curriculum has caught the attention of Doreen Hanna, author of, Raising a Modern-Day Princess, (inspiring value and purpose with creative ideas to create a rite- of- passage experience for our teen girls ) published through Focus on the Family. Doreen Hanna and Anna Minter have combined their efforts in creating a DVD, Leader’s Guide and a girl’s journal for our youngest princesses as a precursor program to the teen program.
To host a private event or to enroll your daughter in an age-appropriate Gracious Me Academy™ workshop led by Ms. Annie, please contact Anna Minter – 541-660-5962 or Anna@GraciousMeAcademy.com. There are several workshops to choose from or create a custom workshop. Within a 2-hour time frame, young ladies get the chance to set the tea table with real teacups, create a craft, get their nails painted, faces painted and dress-up. The lessons include, using correct language, poise and posture, thank-you notes, telephone etiquette, navigating the table, and introductions and greetings.
