Pittsburgh Experience

A recent study of the Dancing Classrooms program sponsored by the Pittsburgh Dancing Classrooms site (Mercy Behavioral Health) demonstrates that the 5th grade students who participated in the Dancing Classrooms program had significantly improved grade point averages after three grade quarters of observation. The grades were also improved for students participating in Dancing Classrooms when compared with the 5th grade students who did not participate for the subjects Social Science, Science, and Math. Led by Dr. Janice Pringle from the University of Pittsburgh, the study examined 330 5th grade students in 6 schools.
