Let’s Dance Kids! South Bay Showcase

Students Display their Moves

  Imperial Beach, CA – On May 25, 2016 at 5:00 PM, over 300 students and numerous staff members will participate in the annual Let’s Dance Kids! South Bay Showcase.  The event will be held in the Mar Vista High School gymnasium, which is historically filled to capacity with parents and families, school staff, and community members to watch and appreciate the art of ballroom dance.

The Let’s Dance Kids! Program began in 2006, and is a non-profit foundation which works in partnership with South Bay Union School District’s Superintendent, Board of Trustees, teachers, and staff to provide ballroom dance experiences to the children of South Bay.   The Program’s instructor, Vanessa Williams, teaches dance to District teachers, who in turn, teach the dances to their students as part of their physical education curriculum.  During the Showcase, the students will display their learning and skills in dances including the fox trot, tango, rumba, swing, jive, waltz, cha-cha, and merengue.  The program enables students to not only develop dance skills, but also gain self-confidence, respect, and many of the social skills and etiquette associated with ballroom dance.  

The Let’s Dance Kids! Board of Directors, which is comprised of volunteers, takes great pride in being able to provide this unique and important opportunity to students in the South Bay community.  The Foundation relies solely on donations, and appreciates the many generous donors who make this exciting evening possible.
