Students learn dances from various regions of Mexico. Not only do they have fun and get good exercise, but they receive a small history lesson with each dance. Each week students are assigned a homework assignment related to the region of Mexico where the dance they are learning originates. Each child shares in class what they have learned in a presentation. This encourages self-esteem through cultivating public speaking skills as well as the showmanship of performance. It is wonderful to observe the growth and confidence that these young children develop in a short time. Our director believes in a holistic approach to dance that centers on developing the individual capacities of each dancer, emphasizing:
- Community Service
- All while having fun!
A firm but patient approach to teaching builds for the girls and their parents a second family where they can live, love, and dance!
A very special congratulations to our Director and Dance Instructor,
Ms. Vanessa Ramirez on being one of the recipients of the
2013 40 Hispanic Leaders Under 40 Award
