About Us

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 metropolitan area schools. Using the New York-based Dancing Classrooms program (portrayed in Mad Hot Ballroom and currently engaging 40,000 children each year) as a model, SLDC partners with fifth grade classrooms; our ultimate goal is make this opportunity available to every fifth grader in the St. Louis metropolitan area.

Residency Program
Our program consists of a 10 week, 20 session curriculum where students learn 6 ballroom dances culminating in a performance in front of the entire school, parents, and community members. For more information, please email us at laurenw@stldancingclassrooms.org or call us at 314.541.6734. The residency occurs during the school day with fifth grade students.

Each school has an option to participate in a city-wide competition, the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match, after successful completion of the residency.
