What We Do

Arts in Motion teaches youth essential life skills through the medium of ballroom dance. Our approach is simple, if unconventional. We capture children during the school day – the whole class, whether they like it or not – and challenge them to learn a skill that can only be acquired if they work together. Constantly changing partners in the course of a lesson, everyone is part of the team; nobody is an outsider. Each of them demonstrates leadership, concentration, polite manners, persistence and a willingness to stumble on the way to achieving an impressive level of group professionalism.

Interesting Info

The documentary 'Mad Hot Ballroom' is about the Dancing Classrooms program.
We began the program in four Omaha classrooms and now are in over 50.
This is an international program and Omaha was the first site outside of New York to implement it.
