The Dancing Classrooms Philly mission is to foster self-esteem, social awareness and joy in children by providing the opportunity to learn and perform ballroom dance. We believe that through this instruction, our organization can help improve the climate of school communities across the Philadelphia region, while building confidence in students, breaking down social barriers, and inspiring respect for all individuals. DCP envisions transformative arts programs in all school communities, building confidence, nurturing creativity and promoting a culture of mutual respect and well-being. We have worked with more than 20,000 local fifth and eighth grade students, in public, charter and parochial schools across the Delaware Valley since its founding in 2007.
