Building confidence, growing a passion


As an 8th grader, Ellie dealt with anxiety and depression from day to day. She felt disconnected from friends and family, and wasn't interested in her classes.

But because of Dancing Classrooms, Ellie had a reason to be excited about school. Her life opened up through dancing. She met new friends, and gained a newfound sense of confidence she never thought possible.

Dancing makes me feel like I’m part of a community.
