The Plaza Finishing Program with Beaumont Etiquette

The Plaza has partnered with world-renown etiquette expert, Myka Meier of Beaumont Etiquette, to create a first-of-its-kind finishing program in the United States.  Offering a choice of three weekend-long courses, and six 2-hour evening classes, adults can learn the essentials of modern day business, social and dining etiquette.

Each course will be taught by Myka Meier, a dual American-British citizen who was trained in part by a former member of The Royal Household of Her Majesty the Queen, and has attended multiple finishing schools in both England and Switzerland. While all courses are based on Western (American, British and European fundamentals) etiquette and taught in English, the programs were created to be exciting, interactive and modern to reflect today’s global society.


The Plaza Proper Etiquette Evenings

The Plaza Proper Etiquette Evenings are comprised of six small group courses for adults, ages 21 and up.  The Wednesday evening courses will be topic specific and held over cocktails and canapés in the world-famous Palm Court at The Plaza.  Attendees may choose to enroll in one individual course or up to all six if they wish. The Plaza Proper Etiquette Evenings are first-come-fist-serve, and limited to 20 students per class.
