Just to prove how tough the competition was this past Saturday-check out our video.  Filled with pictures by Archie Carpenter and a few by our own PMHS Prevention staff members.  Archie always captures the essence of Dancing Classrooms.  And there is nothing more that we enjoy than sharing the love with you.  If this doesn’t encourage you to come see the talent on Saturday May 11th, 10am Pittsburgh Allderdice High School.

The countdown is on! Semi-finals 10am Saturday May 4

Will you be crossing your fingers for good luck?
Will you be crossing your fingers for good luck?

Will it be Pittsburgh Banksville?  Will it be St. Benedict the Moor?  Will it be Pittsburgh Spring Hill   What about returning champion Pittsburgh Linden?  Or maybe it will be Pittsburgh Colfax? But let’s not forget about Pittsburgh Miller and Pittsburgh Weil?  But then again, maybe the trophy will go back to the very first champion, Pittsburgh Phillips…..

In any case, you need to make sure you are there to witness what might be history.  Watch for updates……

Be there or be square.  Aloha!

What is Dancing Classrooms?

When we began to gather interest to bring Dancing Classrooms to Pittsburgh, a few years back, people would always ask, “What is Dancing Classrooms?”  Is it a dance program? Is it after-school?  What dances do the students learn? Just a few of the questions that would be asked.  I always wished I could show them Mad Hot Ballroom, or Take the Lead.  Most folks hadn’t seen either of those movies.  This past June, at our fundraiser, Mad Hot Ballroom Pittsburgh, we created this video which we believe defines what the program is about.  Sit back and enjoy.  And as always please feel free to share and spread the word!
