Dancing Classrooms Philly

Move over Dancing with the Stars!   St. Martha's 5th Grade is participating in ballroom dancing lessons through the Dancing Classrooms Philly program.  This program was awarded to us through the Connelly Foundation.  It was started in 1994 in New York City by Pierre Dulaine, a world champion ballroom dancer. Today, more than 25 cities across North America and 5 internationally are participating in a Dancing Classrooms program.


Our 5th grade students are learning the merengue, foxtrot, rumba, tango, swing, and waltz, along with selected "sugar" dances, such as the heel-toe polka, the stomp, and the electric slide.  The program takes place in the cafeteria during the regular school day twice a week.  Dancing Classrooms Philly fosters respect, team work, and a sense of joy and accomplishment that we believe every child should experience!


At the end of the program, there will be a culminating event at each school. Parents, friends, and family are invited to watch the children perform the dances they have learned.


Check out the video below to see what 5th grade has been learning!
