PARTNERING WITH THE COMMUNITY

Columbus connection

EDUCATING THE YOUNGER GENERATION AND GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY!

DanceEdge calls central Ohio home, and we are excited to be making a difference in the Columbus area. Through homeschool classes and events, youth life skills programs, and involvement in the OSU Cancer Research programs and OSU DanceSport, we have seen the positive effects of dance on people of all ages and stations in life. Read on to find out more about our outreach programs.

DANCE EDGECONNECTION

 

DanceEdge is excited to announce our newest program, DanceEdgeConnection! At DanceEdge we know how important movement is to children of all ages. The discipline, fitness and social skills that come from learning ballroom dance will last a lifetime! We currently offer youth formation and partnering classes as well as beginner ballroom classes for homeschoolers. Bring your teens by to try it out at one of our youth dance parties!

OSU CANCER RESEARCH

Cancer treatment can cause mobility issues for some people. Research conducted by a team at The Ohio State University discovered that dance therapy—specifically the Argentine Tango—can counteract some of the balance and movement problems survivors experience.

We are honored to partner up with the Ohio State University in its sponsorship of the Tango for Cancer classes. 

OSU DANCESPORT

As coach and mentor in Rhythm and Smooth, Jeffrey Goltiao is proud to be involved for over five years with OSU DanceSport. DanceSport at OSU is the Competitive Team & Social Club For Ballroom Dancing at THE Ohio State University! One highlight of his time working with OSU is winning 1st Place American Team Match at the National Collegiate DanceSport Championships in 2015.

YOUTH LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM

For over 40 years, Ron Clark has worked with Columbus area schools to introduce grade school children to social dance and etiquette. Created by Ron, this educational program has served countless students over the years, giving students an opportunity to enter adulthood with dance as a foundation for social interaction. Respect, courtesy and confidence are emphasized as the students learn slow, fast and line dances!
