The first stage is the "Grass Roots Program," which consists of our team teaching ballroom dancing from the 1st grade level all the way through High School. Students are being introduced to the many joys and benefits of Dance as they are taught the fundamentals of ballroom dancing, including the social, historical and musical elements in a 10 lesson foundation program inside of their own schoolroom or Gym.
At the end of the program a check out exam is given to each students and their parents are encouraged to participate in the Final Celebration Dance. To date over 15,000 young dancers (and their families) have benefited from the World Dance Arts Foundation "Classrooms that Rock" Programs.
The second aspect of the Foundation function is to assist young dancers who have decided to pursue ballroom dancing as a serious hobby and possible career. To this end we provide an opportunity for them to have real-life Competitive experience (Free of charge) through our "Ballroom Blitz" and "Stars of Tomorrow" Events.
Finally, we provide internships, partnership searches and placement services for those dedicated dancers that chose to continue beyond the classroom and pursue dance as a career. The Foundation strives to help improve dance standards and knowledge; in this regard we sponsor dance schools to receive top level dance training and we have and will continue to work to organize and encourage regional dance training opportunities.
Sponsored by the World Dance Arts Foundation, this Event is FREE to participating young dancers.
