We had a wonderful fundraising luncheon in Rochester on November 27, 2018. Heart of Dance leaders, donors, volunteers and school officials gathered and watch 5th graders from Gage Elementary School and Riverside Community School demonstrate the dances they have learned this semester. Read about it in this article published in the Rochester Post Bulletin! Photos here.

We are pleased to have two schools in Rochester participating in the Dancing Classrooms Program for our Spring 2019 semester:

Pinewood Elementary School
Sunset Terrace Elementary School


In Fall 2017, Heart of Dance applied for a grant from the Rochester Area Foundation
to help us expand in the Rochester area. Lisa Anderson, 5th grade teacher at Pinewood Elementary School,
wrote a wonderful letter about her Dancing Classrooms' experience.
Read her testimonial here. Thank you Lisa for your support!

Congratulations to our School Partners for successfully completing their residency! We look forward to working with you again.
