We are extremely proud of how much fun people tell us they have when they attend the Des Moines Dance Classic, but we are even more proud THIS YEAR of adding some events in the evening to raise funds to help fight the trafficking of children. We will have Jack & Jill events, Reverse Lead, Collegiate Team Sports and more during the General Dance portion of the evening. 

Come dressed as a Bootlegger, Flapper, or Gangster from the 1920's.

Best Costume wins a  CASH AWARD!

Monay raised during the special events in the evening will go to Operation Underground Railroad,

a group who rescues children worldwide from slavery, sex trafficking, and abuse.
