You’ve heard of Mad Hot Ballroom (the documentary based on Dancing Classrooms’ work teaching children in school how to ballroom dance and show respect and compassion)… now get ready for Mad Hot Meatballs!

Dancing Classrooms Long Island (DCLI) invites you to an hour of virtual cooking fun to learn how to make LB Social’s famous chicken meatballs. 

DCLI has served more than 26,000 young people all over Long Island through the past 13 years and is now expanding its reach to include dance for adults 55 and up, a population that has grown increasingly isolated due to the pandemic. 

We are raising funds to bring the magical power of dance to more folks virtually until it’s safe to do so in person.

We can’t think of a better partner than a restaurant in one of the communities we serve on the south shore of Long Island, Long Beach, and LB Social chef Matt Hisiger. He’ll be breaking down how to make the restaurant’s famous chicken meatballs and zucchini linguine.

Register by Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, and you will receive the ingredient list and a Zoom link to the class. If you can’t make the class at that time, no problem—let us know and we can send you a link to the recording.

Email Angela Trivigno at with any questions. 

We can’t wait to have a ball with you!
