Dancing Classrooms Stepped into the Future. Did you join us on the floor?

The Stepping into the Future campaign raised nearly $190,000!

If you missed it, or would like to revel in the celebrations again, check out the program video!

On September 23rd 2020, Dancing Classrooms gathered virtually to celebrate our first-ever Virtual Mad Hot Ball!

We were so thrilled to connect so many friends and supporters to Step Into The Future and celebrate the transformative impacts of social dance on young people and the generous community who makes this work possible.

Although our Stepping into the Future Campaign is over, please consider supporting our work.

A highlight of the evening included our students Grace and Zya sharing how dance has made a difference in their lives especially during this challenging time.

On behalf of all of the students, teaching artists, and staff at Dancing Classrooms, thank you for stepping with us into a future where all of our students can thrive.

“Dancing and Dancing Classrooms make me really really happy because I feel like when I am dancing, people get me.”
