Dancing Classrooms (DC) teaches students to fox trot, rumba, merengue, tango and swing, while at the same time acquiring self-confidence, self-esteem, respect for self and others, positive experiences in teamwork, communication, and dignity. DC is a regularly scheduled class and at the end, students present a public show of what they have learned
The fifth graders of South Side's Phillips K-5 were one of six Pittsburgh Public Schools to participate in DC this past fall.
