In a Nutshell

Donations sponsor five students in an in-school social dancing program that helps them build confidence and break down social barriers

100% of donations go directly to Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Lack of Social-Skills Lessons for Schoolchildren

While many past generations took etiquette classes, most of today's students no longer receive that kind of formal training in civil discourse. Dancing classes offer a unique opportunity to hone social skills because they emphasize rules based on respect and cultivate mutual understanding between partners.

The Campaign: Sponsoring Youth in Social Dancing Program

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio can sponsor five children in a 10-week social dancing program. Each additional $100 raised will fund participation in the program for another youth. Dancing Classrooms Northeast Ohio uses ballroom dancing as a vehicle for improving students' social development, self-esteem, teamwork, and communication skills. Fifth-and eighth-grade children meet during the school day twice a week for 10 weeks to learn several contemporary dance styles.
