Our Mission is to raise money for Dancing In The Schools. We provide grants to local schools to pay for professional dance teachers to give students lessons on how to dance. This gives students exposure to arts which they might not otherwise be able to experience.


in the Schools

Dancing In The Schools is a partnership between Dancing & Singing with The King™, The Dance Studio of Tupelo and local schools. Dancing & Singing With The King™ and participating schools partner to raise the money needed for dance classes. The Dance Studio of Tupelo provides professional instructors to teach the classes. 

At the end of the school year, all eligible, participating children are brought together for a festival to celebrate what they learned that year.
