Dance Chance

Formed in the spring of 2007, Dance Chance exists today as a partnership with Springfield Public Schools, Community Partnership of the Ozarks and Springfield Ballet to provide free dance instruction to children at Title I schools. During the 2016-2017 season, Springfield Ballet instructors traveled to Boyd Elementary, McGregor Elementary, Weaver Elementary, Weller Elementary for weekly dance instruction for grades kindergarten through third. Each fall, Springfield Ballet provides an in-school demonstration at an assembly for each school. At the completion of each session, participants demonstrate what they’ve learned for family and friends in a public performance. More than 600 children have benefited from this program since its inception.


This program is supported by:
