Re: Every school in the US should do this! Posted by madiemer 12/16/2008 4:58:00 PM
Chicago Public Schools promotes ballroom dance as part of its 5th grade curriculum - students in its "Having a Ball" ballroom dance intensive learn a combination of Latin and Standard dances and meet 3 times per week during the regular school day. Ideally it would be more wide spread however funding is (as always) an issue. However the positive impact on the children who do get to participate is incredible.
