  • 5th Grade Ballroom Dancing

    "Through the joyful art and practice of social dances, Dancing Classrooms cultivates engaged learners, collaborative leaders, and inclusive spaces." 

    Dancing Classrooms has been a part of P.S. 173 for nearly a decade and this year, students were able to once again come together to show off their skills. Led by our wonderful Dancing Classroom's teacher Ms. Lisa, with the support of our Movement teacher, Ms. Chavez, students learned a variety of dances including the salsa, meringue, and fox trot. At their culminating performance, students came together to share what they have learned over the last 10 weeks as a large group, individually, and in pairs. 

    Turn learn more about the Dancing Classroom program, visit their website at Dancingclassrooms.org.
