Join the Dance (Canada) understands, respects and values the role and responsibility of educators in today's highly complex and challenging world. For these very same reasons, our charity and program came into existence in Ontario. 

Through the proven benefits of Pierre Dulaine's Dancing Classrooms we are able to support your efforts, especially to ensuring that every child has an equitable opportunity to succeed.  "No child left behind" is the belief principle and guiding force in all our work and in our charitable mission. 

Dancing Classrooms™ is not just about teaching students how to dance. It develops essential life skills and expands children’s horizons. Partner dancing has proven to be a great tool for helping children to break down social barriers, develop respect for each other, improve self-confidence and build communication skills.

 In addition to learning the basics of ballroom dance, participants are learning about other cultures, enriching literacy and other key academic skills, and appreciating the importance of valuing diversity & equal opportunity in society. This is all achieved through a unique integrated learning approach that also allows our Teaching Artist and their co-facilitating classroom teachers to be primary role models of collaboration and teamwork to success. Lastly, in Dancing Classrooms our participants are involved in great physical activity while having enormous healthy fun.

 Proof positive for the exceptional benefits of Dancing Classrooms™ is the on-going testimonials of growing numbers of participating educators, students and families across our sites in North America, Europe and the Middle East that speak to the positive impact on their entire community, not just the students. The considerable benefits achieved include a decrease in absenteeism, improved overall well being and increased interest in academic achievement.
