Give the Gift of Dance – Dancing Classrooms North East Ohio
Remember “Take The Lead,” that movie where Antonio Bandaras plays a dancing teacher (Pierre Dulaine) who teaches a group of inner city kids to dance and, well, find themselves in the process? You saw it and cried at the end, remember? It was cheesy, but a great story that happens to be true!
My friend Jo Jo worked for Pierre at Dancing Classrooms in New York, and she has gone on to open another branch with the same mission.
“The dance is a tool for getting the children to break down social barriers, learn about honor and respect, treat others carefully, improve self-confidence, communicate and cooperate, and accept others even if they are different.”
For your friends who love to dance, not just ballroom dance bump ‘n grind works too, make a donation in their honor to kids learning life’s lessons through dance.
