Life Change Ballroom is committed to helping our students realize their full potential through the transformative power of ballroom dance.
Founder Cindy Pipkin felt called to begin Life Change Ballroom after learning about New York’s in-school ballroom dance program. While she had no previous experience working with schools, children, nonprofits, or dancing, she did have a plan. In 2006, Cindy launched Life Change Ballroom with the support of the Oklahoma City community in order to use dance skills to teach life skills. Each year, Life Change Ballroom changes the lives of thousands of at-risk youths through teamwork, sportsmanship, goal-setting, leadership, trust, and respect.
Through the arts, we are building essential life skills, sportsmanship, and positive self-esteem in Oklahoma’s at-risk youth. We are teaching our students to DO more, BE more, and HAVE more, so they can GIVE more!
Our incredible in-school and after-school programs would not be possible without the help of our talented instructors. Meet our team of exceptional instructors and learn what they’re all about!
