Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio is a social development program that uses ballroom dance as a tool to get children to break down social barriers, build self-confidence, and learn to work together as a team. I have seen the incredible impact this program has had on the children in our communities and am moved to tears, even after being involved for nearly four years, watching the transformation the children of the program go through. When they first start Dancing Classrooms, they don't want to dance, and they especially don't want to dance with each other, but by the end of the 20-session residency, their confidence has skyrocketed, they feel better about themselves, they have made new friends and learned how to treat each other with kindness and respect, and they are proud of their accomplishments. It's truly an amazing program to be a part of.
