Dance Like a Fifth Grader!
Students in our fall semester of Dancing Classrooms are already dancing the dramatic tango, the rhythmic merengue, and even the elegant foxtrot. We kicked off the 2016-17 school year with over 600 fifth graders in 26 classrooms within 10 Twins Cities schools. This month they will meet a volunteer professional dancer who will share a personal career story and model what is possible for their future.  
Celebrate our First Year with Our Annual Report!

As Heart of Dance doubles its growth in our second year, we also look back with gratitude to all those who have joined us on this journey. We invite you to download our first Annual Report from our website here. Or just check out the highlights you like below!
