Mission Statement

Our mission is to cultivate essential life skills in children through the joyful art and practice of social dance.

Description

St. Louis Dancing Classrooms (SLDC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit social development program aimed at empowering youth, teaching respectful interaction, and promoting teamwork in St. Louis area schools. Using the New York-based Dancing Classrooms program (portrayed in ‪Mad Hot Ballroom‬ and currently engaging over 40,000 children each year) as a model, SLDC partners with fifth grade classrooms to address whole-child development and foster overall student success.

Since 2008, St. Louis Dancing Classrooms has been invited to conduct our 10-week residency program in over 30 schools (public and parochial) across St. Louis City and County, from Ferguson all the way to Hillsboro and DeSoto. During (2) 45-50 minute sessions per week, students learn the Merengue, Foxtrot, Rumba, Tango, Swing, and Waltz, along with several other "sugar" dances while developing and practicing the life skills necessary for creating positive and meaningful connections with others. SLDC and its partner schools work together to encourage student participation, monitor behavioral expectations, and promote kindness, compassion, and joyful expression through ballroom dance.
