Ballroom Dance In School

Just read a great little story about fifth-graders learning swing dancing in schools.

“…the classroom teachers tell us there is such a change in their behavior,” Suzie Henneman [ballroom instructor] said on the increased level of respect teachers said their pupils show for each other. 

“The swing is their favorite,” she said. “But it’s interesting how much they take to the tango. It’s such a serious dance. But they love the dance.”
