See Heart of Dance on KARE 11!
Watch Friday night's KARE 11 story on Heart of Dance by clicking here. See 5th graders at Windom Dual Immersion School in Minneapolis as they perform for their classmates, teachers, and parents. You'll hear the story of Sam, a young man who gave up his spot at the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match for a teammate: 

"He was really bummed out when he didn't make it, and I thought he should have made it. And so I thought, well I'm going to be happy dancing too, but I'm also going to be happy seeing him dancing so it's like a win-win."  

See Respect, Elegance, and Teamwork change lives. Join Sam as he cheers on his teammates next Sunday at the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match.

Programming is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. We are also grateful for the support of The Emerald Foundation, F. R. Bigelow Foundation, Mardag Foundation and The Saint Paul Foundation, as well as many generous individual donors and volunteers. This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State's general fund.
