The Dancing Classrooms program currently delivers our in-school residency program in approximately 200 schools in all 5 boroughs of NYC. The Colors of the Rainbow Team Match is an optional, extended journey beyond the residency for schools that want to give twelve of their students a special experience and offer their student body an additional opportunity to foster school spirit.

The team match was originally designed to bring children from around the city together. It shows them that they are part of a larger dancing family, and unites the vast diversity of cultures and ethnicities of NYC. All team matches confirm the core values of the Dancing Classrooms program: mutual respect, tolerance, teamwork, sportsmanship and elegance amongst children.

The Colors of the Rainbow Team Match is also a wonderful community builder as we bring together students, schools and parent communities that otherwise may not interact. They work together as a larger group to create and share a new “safe space”.

Students move through the Team Match cycle as follows:  In the Fall, Winter and Spring Terms we host borough quarter finals whose winners move on to the borough semi-finals, whose winners move on to the city-wide semester final.

The winners from each semester final will be all meet at the city-wide Colors of the Rainbow Grand Final on June 22. The Grand Final is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
