The team-based competition that included 60 students representing five schools from across Long Island was a community celebration for students who participated in the 10-week, 20-lesson Dancing Classrooms program. 

For 10 years, Lynwood fifth graders have participated in the dance programs that teaches eight ballroom dances, a line dance and a folk dance while incorporating elements important to dance such as teamwork, respect, self-confidence and nonverbal communication.
