Throwback Thursday-It’s Not All About the Dance….

Dancing Classrooms is about so many things.  Getting along with others, respect, trust, cooperation, communication….just to name a few.  At Dancing Classrooms Pittsburgh, we also make the effort to be good sports.  Just as the National Hockey League has their traditional handshake after a team is eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs, we do the same at the end of each semi-final and finals.  Enjoy this picture from a few years ago.   See you next week!

A Special Thank You

Over the past six years, Dancing Classrooms Pittsburgh has had a total of 21 major events-meet and greets, fundraisers, semi-finals, and finals.  And for each of those events, there have been pictures taken.  The number has to have exceeded 10,000 or more pictures.  Many of those pictures you see on this blog.  And some you have even seen in the Post Gazette.  We can’t say thank you enough to Lake Fong of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, and Archie Carpenter (or as we call him, The Official Photographer of Dancing Classrooms Pittsburgh).  Two great men who are passionate about the work that they do.  And don’t you think it shows?  Thanks again gentleman.  Dancing Classrooms Pittsburgh salutes you both!  Please take a bow!!!!!
