Mission and Vision

Our mission is to build social awareness, confidence and self-esteem in children through the practice of social dance.

Through standards-based, in-school residencies, we use the vocabulary of ballroom dance to cultivate the positive feelings that are inherent in every child. The maturity necessary to dance together fosters respect, teamwork, confidence and a sense of joy and accomplishment which we hope to bring to every child.

Our vision is to make the St. Louis Dancing Classroom curriculum available to every child within the St. Louis metropolitan area.
