Ball Room Dance

Through the art of dance, we aspire to instill positive character values, improve social skills and promote the positive benefit of exercise in 4th and 5th grade students of various socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds including students with disabilities and those learning English as a second language...

We provide ballroom dance lessons to fourth and fifth grade students in elementary schools in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. A majority of the students come from low socio-economic areas where parents are unable to provide dance lessons for their children. Many students are learning English as a second language. We also include special education students who have a variety of learning and physical disabilities. Our program has changed the dynamics of family relationships. Parents and children are now dancing together at home in the evening as a preferred activity.

Through the learning of ballroom dance, we have seen students demonstrate positive character values, interact in a positive manner with their peers as well as understand the positive benefit of regular exercise in their daily lives. In addition, students have demonstrated improved personal hygiene. Students have shown improved self-esteem as well as increased self-confidence. They exhibit respect for each other and positive social interaction skills with their peers.
