Sultry tango music plays in a half-empty portable classroom at Voyager Elementary School. Chairs and tables have been pushed aside to create a small dance floor, where students in pairs mark the beat with their feet.

What people are saying about Dancing Classrooms
“(Dancing Classrooms) is really a natural way to teach kids and practice treating each other with respect and treating people the way you want to be treated.”
“Competing at Colors of the Rainbow taught me good and healthy competition”
“Dancing classrooms is so much more than dancing lessons. Students begin the program being unsure of themselves and a bit uncomfortable in their own skin. They transform into a family that supports one another in ways that reach beyond the classroom. To be vulnerable with your classmates while learning something new together leads to confidence in all areas of life. I am grateful for the transformation so many children experience through this program! It’s not about the dancing…but the dancing is fun!”
