"Culture Through Ballroom Dance, Ltd." is a non-profit corporation conducting dance lessons primarily in public schools. As shown in the popular documentary movie, “Mad Hot Ballroom”, an in-school ballroom dance program provides each and every child, regardless of background, the opportunity to acquire social graces while experiencing the joy of accomplishment through the art of dance.
Our Mission is to develop a positive foundation in children by building confidence, self-esteem, and interactive social skills through the artistic expression of Ballroom Dance. Our curriculum based arts-in-education in-school residencies give children the opportunity to learn the artistic components of ballroom dances of various cultures. In the process, they also learn etiquette, teamwork, and respect for others.
From the article below: "Dance is a language of physical exercise that sparks new brain cells (neurogenesis) and their connections. These connections are responsible for acquiring knowledge and thinking."
