Dancing with Class was founded in 2006 as the youth outreach division of May I Have This Dance™. Co-founders Margot Toppen (Executive Director of Dancing with Class and CEO/Founder of EduMotion) and Nino DiGiulio (Founder/Owner of May I Have This Dance™) used their collective backgrounds in Education and Arts Administration to design an engaging youth dance program specifically geared toward the learning styles of children and young adults. DwC’s large and diverse staff of professional teaching artists has been trained to use this curriculum to deliver excellent quality programming.
