Ballroom dancers plead the 5th

Mad Hot Ballroom
The first finals competition of Dancing Classrooms Philly took place Saturday afternoon at the Merriam Theater. Fifth-graders from six schools took the stage in a heated competition that was the culmination of a 10-week program a la “Mad Hot Ballroom.”  Foxtrot, tango, rumba, merengue and the kids’ favorite, swing dancing, were on the agenda. Parents and classmates cheered wildly from the seats. When the dust cleared, the Orange Team from Russell Byers Charter School sashayed away with the tall trophy.
