THE FELIX AUSTRIA SCHOOL OF CIVILITY serves the children of Los Angeles and is the new and unique authority on practices of civilized behavior in the internet age--we take it out of ossified dance halls and classrooms and into the field (LIFE), where we practice principles of good manners as we go. The Felix Austria School curriculum emphasizes “civility,” because before there can be refinement in social engagement, one must be aware of and attentive to the needs and desires of others around oneself--and to act with sincerity.
By remaining socially alert, we make the world around us easier for others and thereby easier for ourselves. From this base of civilized behavior, we can move on to the more refined nuances of etiquette at play during dinner parties and ceremonies, for example (to which we're not invited unless we demonstrate the simplest expressions of civility first).
Grounded in the realities of California-living amid its brilliant ethnic diversity and the clipped and distracted pace of the internet age, The Felix Austria School also draws from the storied richness of etiquette in Vienna and the tried-and-true principles of America's great Emily Post.
Join us for a half day excursion to various exhibitions happening around the city!
