Support Heart of Dance


We currently serve more than 70 classrooms every year.

That's just 2.5% of all the 5th and 8th graders in the Twin Cities alone. Together, we can say yes to more classrooms and more students!


It takes $4000 to deliver a Dancing Classrooms residency to one class of students. The school covers half, and the other half is raised by Heart of Dance – that’s where you come in.

An investment of…

$2,000 Engages an entire class of students in a semester of Dancing Classrooms – cultivating an entire class of future leaders!

$1,000 Provides half a class of students a semester of Dancing Classrooms – building the confidence of one child every month for the entire year.

$500 Connects six students through the respect and teamwork modeled in Dancing Classrooms.

$250 Covers the cost for one school team to attend the community-building Colors of the Rainbow Team Match.

$100 Delivers the first lesson of dance steps and crucial social and emotional skills to an entire class of students.

$84 Transforms one young life through Dancing Classrooms.

$50 Teaches an entire class of fifth graders the basic step in the Waltz – and so much more!
