Students are ready to take the stage at Pittsburgh Allderdice tomorrow for Dancing Classrooms Pittsburgh’s Colors of the Rainbow semifinal team match.

The competition begins at 10 a.m. with the Parade of Colors. Six couples from each school will dance the Merengue, Foxtrot, Rumba, Tango, and Swing. When it ends at noon, four of nine teams will advance to the finals in May.

Will there be a clear leader? Or will it come down to a tie-breaker?

Join us and see for yourself. Colors of the Rainbow is free and open to the public. You’re sure to be impressed by what these fifth graders have learned over 10 weeks of Dancing Classrooms.
