Ballroom Dance Inspiration.
What if someone told you that … a little ballroom dancing can change a school, engage a classroom, and turn out gritty, socially mature, high-achieving students? Tatiana Lingos-Webb has spent years getting 10-year-olds to tango and cha cha cha with their classmates, and her work reinforces the growing consensus that social and emotional intelligence plays a major role in children’s academic outcomes and life success. She challenges schools to spend time “teaching to the steps” instead of just “teaching to the test”. We’d love to hear your take on this crucial topic. Let us have your comments.
