“Dancing is about connections … to our friends, to our families, to our neighbors. It is one of the most expressive ways we celebrate and communicate our cultures and communities. With Dancing Classrooms, we are able to reach children in existing classroom settings and address fundamental issues of mutual respect and self-esteem – issues that social dance puts into practice. We hope to inspire children through dance to do well, to respect one another, to be proud. This program is about more than dance, it is about teaching children to take a bow.” - Pierre Dulaine & Yvonne Marceau

YOU CAN HELP

We need your help to continue our educational and artistic programming.  Commit to making the program accessible to as many children as possible.  The revenue we earn directly from schools is enough to cover only half of the actual cost of the program.  

Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio is made possible through the generosity of many individuals; we invite you to join us by making a contribution to our program, thus permitting more schools to participate and more children to experience Dancing Classrooms.  Please consider partnering with us financially in this effort.  Every dollar brings us one step closer to meeting our goals. 

  • $3,000 "Adopt-a-Class" - Funds a full (twenty session) Dancing Classrooms residency to one classroom of students
  • $1,500 - 1/2 the cost of a residency & Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio's fundraising goal for each residency taught
  • $200  - Funds one "couple" for a full Dancing Classrooms residency
  • $100 - Funds one student for a full Dancing Classrooms residency
  • $50, $20, $10, $5 - it all adds up.  No amount is too small 

There are many projects available to support such as adopt-a-classroom, the training of our Teaching Artists, and our annual Colors of the Rainbow Team Match.
