Dancing Classrooms is Stepping into the Future. Will you join us on the floor?


Balance. Grace. Flexibility. Community. Joy. 

The pillars of the Dancing Classroom's curriculum prepared us for this transformational moment. Embracing our legacy, we are taking the lead to step confidently into a future that continues to ensure that young people experience the joy, confidence, and connection that social dance offers, in spite of the many challenges keeping us apart. We hope you will join us!


To kick off our next chapter, we invite you to celebrate at the Virtual Mad Hot Ball 


The Mad Hot Ball is one of our favorite nights of the year - an excuse to kick up our heels to celebrate the transformative impacts of social dance on young people and the generous community who makes this work possible. This year we may not be able to celebrate in person, but that doesn’t mean the party is off!

Since mid-March, approximately 1,000 young people have received Dancing Classroom’s world-renowned teaching from the safety of their own homes, in addition to the 12,000 students served in schools this fall and winter. We are eager to partner with more schools and communities to expand access and deepen our commitment to social dance as an instrument of joy and personal growth.


Step Up. Stand Out. Stay Home.
