ABOUT MAD HOT BALLROOM AND TAP
The primary goals are to:
- To improve studentsâ€™ social and emotional skills;
- To improve studentsâ€™ respect for self and others;
- To improve studentsâ€™ attitudes toward physical activity.
Danceworks MHBT runs February â€“ May.Â Participating schools select one 4th or 5th grade classroom to participate in tap and one 5th or 6th grade classroom to participate in ballroom. Danceworks instructors provide one-hour dance classes twice per week for each style of dance over the course of 12 weeks â€“ 24 total hours of dance per classroom.Â Culminating performance at each school, as well as an annualÂ Danceworks MHBT Competition held at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in downtown Milwaukee, cap off the program in May.Â Â Families incur no costs for this program.
