5th Graders Demonstrate Teamwork and Elegance at Colors of the Rainbow Team Match

Over 150 fifth grade students participated in the Colors of the Rainbow Team Match sponsored by JCI St. Paul May 20 at the Intercontinental St. Paul Riverfront Hotel, and we could not be more proud! Students from 14 schools in Twin Cities, Duluth, Cologne and Rochester showcased Respect, Elegance, and Teamwork as they danced Merengue, Tango, Foxtrot, Waltz, Swing and Rumba in two Team Matches. This year we had the first-ever Dancing Classrooms dance runoff as two teams tied in the placements! Every team received a trophy and every student a medal. Congratulations to all!

See the lively Merengue (above) from the first Team Match and scroll down to see the dramatic Tango from the second Team Match. The photos below capture the energy of our students and families! Watch our website for more photos and videos.
