Ballroom dancing kids perform at Union Station

Last night, Union Station’s grand Historic Ticketing Hall came alive to the sights and sounds of ballroom dancing. Over one hundred talented fifth-graders from 10 schools across Los Angeles County competed in five ballroom dances, from the classic foxtrot to the dramatic tango.

The free program was presented by Dancing Classrooms Los Angeles in collaboration with Metro Presents, which showcases arts and cultural programming in an effort to creatively activate the landmark station, engage the Los Angeles community and attract new riders. Many of the 300+ students, teachers, family members and friends arrived via Metro, and preferential seating was made available to TAP card holders.
