About Us


Our mission at Dancing Classrooms is to cultivate essential life skills in children through the joyful art and practice of social dance. We foster brave spaces in which children take creative and social-emotional risks while developing respect and cultural competence. Through standards-based, in-school residencies and out of school programs, we use the vocabulary of social and partner dance to support the next generation of compassionate, global citizens.  Visit dancingclassrooms.org to learn more! 

 

MAD HOT BALL is our largest fundraising event at Dancing Classrooms. The contributions from this evening fuel our ability to serve our communities and thousands of students, in New York City and beyond, year after year.
