A many year running initiative that brings ballroom dance to schoolchildren throughout Massachusetts as part of each school's academic curriculum. The arts-in-residence program, currently active in 13 Massachusetts schools, reaches approximately 800 students who learn basics in the ballroom dances.

The program integrates the arts, humanities, sciences, and physical education disciplines.

The Kids Ballroom Dance Program is a non-profit organization, sponsored by grants, funding and support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Healthy Living Cambridge Kids, MASSabda/USA Dance Chapter 3002 and the individual school districts.

In 2007, The Kids Ballroom Dance Program, as part of a coalition with the Healthy Children Task Force, received the prestigious Innovation in Prevention Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The program is offered in elementary and secondary schools and is looking to incorporate into inner city of the Boston Metropolitan area.
