Dancing with Heart
"Dancing Classrooms was really fun and I can't believe it has to stop. But I think having that time in my brain and my body was really beautiful. I'll still have a part of Dancing Classrooms in my heart and I'll never forget it. It was awesome."  

That's what fifth-grader Jose from Harambee Elementary told over 200 supporters of Heart of Dance who came to celebrate the first two years of Dancing Classrooms at Tuesday's Dancing with Heart luncheon. Heart of Dance could not be more grateful for the warm and generous response. Enjoy our new video above! Fifth graders from Learning for Leadership Charter School and Windom Dual Immersion School danced to rave reviews by guests. Special thanks to Jose and fifth-grader Sam (Windom) for their impressive and heartfelt presentations, and to Principals Bryan Bass (Linwood Monroe Arts Plus, St. Paul) and VaNita Miller (Field Community School, Minneapolis) for sharing their passions for our partnership. 

There is still time to contribute, and bring the benefits of ballroom dance to more fifth graders next year. Donate Here today. 

Thank you!
Teamwork Brings our Winning Teams Together

Two gentlemen from Windom Dual Immersion School volunteered to help Learning for Leadership Charter School at the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match when they discovered a shortage of gentlemen on the team. A young lady from Learning for Leadership thanked a Windom gentleman (who she just met) with a handshake. Learning for Leadership placed first at the Team Match and Windom second. Both teams performed together at Tuesday's Dancing with Heart luncheon in the true spirit of Respect, Elegance, and Teamwork.

Congratulations to our ten participating schools this semester! Every school received a trophy and every student a medal. Photos and videos will be available on our website shortly.
Thank you!

We could not do this without your amazing support.
