Red Hot Ballroom was founded in 2007 by Ballroom dance instructors and Palm Desert residents, Bob & Nancy Horn. It was formed at the request of the District Attorney and in response to meetings with local law enforcement officials and school district officials.
The program uses Ballroom and Latin Dance instruction as a vehicle to provide a positive influence on at-risk children in the 4th through 7th grades in Coachella Valley public schools.
As funding for the Arts and afterschool programs continues to be a problem, Red Hot Ballroom was formed to provide the students with the necessary social skills to prepare for life’s challenges. We give students the tools they need to get along with others, be confident and respectful of others, stand up to bullying and the negative pressure to try drugs or join gangs. Our program helps children make good decisions.
Red Hot Ballroom is now in 34 schools and all three school districts in the Coachella Valley. Over 96% of the children in our program are part of Title 1, low income families. We provide our program at no cost to the children, their families or the school districts. We present participation medallions to all students, as well as, trophies and awards at all three Dance Competition Finals. To those children that need it, we provide formal dance wear and shoes.
Our program serves over 1,000 children. We rely on donations from Foundations, Corporate Sponsors—and people such as you! Please help us improve the lives of our children, by donating to Red Hot Ballroom.
