Dancing Classrooms Exhibition Saturday March 1 at Miromar Outlets
Fifth grade students across Lee County have begun ballroom dancing lessons in their classrooms as part of the Dancing Classrooms program, a national program that utilizes ballroom dancing as a vehicle to build social awareness, confidence and self-esteem through the practice of social dance. Now in its seventh year, the program is administered locally by The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, and funded by Miromar Outlets. Students from seven Title I schools in Lee County participate in 10 weeks/20 lessons of training from certified dance instructors, and show their skills at exhibitions at Miromar Outlets. The final ballroom dancing competition called “Colors of the Rainbow” will be held on April 12 at Miromar Design Center. Participating schools are Bonita Springs Elementary, Colonial Elementary, Edgewood Academy, J. Colin English Elementary, Lehigh Acres Elementary, Tortuga Preserve Elementary, and Spring Creek Elementary.
