Culminating Events

The Dancing Classrooms program is a 10-week, in-school residency for 5th and 8th graders. With two sessions every week, each residency includes a video lesson and a guest artist visit, and culminates in a showcase for all participating classes, where every child performs. These culminating events are the highlight of our residencies. The school community and parents get to celebrate the social development of their students and enjoy an elegant dance performance as well! Time and again, parents are amazed and touched by the changes they see in their children because of Dancing Classrooms. We would love for you to join us at one of these events!**

Colors of the Rainbow Team Match

Sunday, May 19, 2019

Intercontinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel
11 East Kellogg Boulevard , St. Paul , Minnesota , 55101

The Dancing Classrooms program currently delivers our in-school residency program to schools throughout the Twin Cities, Duluth, and Rochester, MN. The Colors of the Rainbow Team Match is an OPTIONAL, extended journey beyond the residency for schools that want to give 12-14 of their students a special experience and offer their student body an additional opportunity to foster school spirit.

The team match was designed to bring children from around the state together. It shows them that they are part of a larger dancing family, and unites the vast diversity of cultures and ethnicities of Minnesota. All team matches confirm the core values of the Dancing Classrooms program: mutual respect, tolerance, teamwork, sportsmanship and elegance.

The Colors of the Rainbow Team Match is also a wonderful community builder as we bring together students, schools and parent communities that otherwise may not interact. They work together as a larger group to create and share a new “safe space”.

Check back here soon for more details as we finalize the plans for this wonderful event. This event is FREE and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
