Every school in the US should do this!

School Dance Education in UK
The article is a couple of weeks old but it's a great story.

I know that a few isolated school systems in the US have tried some form of dance education (remember "Mad Hot Ballroom"?) but the idea has really not spread very far.

Having been a public school teacher years ago, I am absolutely certain that adding ballroom dancing (including Latin) to a school's curriculum would do a great deal to promote self-confidence and respect for others, especially girls.

Of course, given the regressive political climate in the US, this proposal has absolutely no chance whatsoever of being implemented except in a few progressive areas.

Great idea, though.
