Description

Class Experience

1.- The participants will be exposed to the cultural connections between regions of the world 
2.- They'll gain a basic but impactful understanding of the enormous human diversity and experiences in the world
3.- They'll create lasting and positive memories that will nurture empathy and an appreciation for diversity from a young age
In November 2020, I completed my “Certificate Program in Social Emotional Arts”  by “UCLArts & Healing.”  There I learned strategies to use the arts as a tool to teach and practice social skills (For example, Appreciating our Uniqueness) in an interactive and very fun way. I confirmed it is possible to connect emotionally through a digital platform like Zoom and also I learned about the psychological and neurological benefits of moving and creating together. 

I have over 13 years of dance training and experience (including a BA in Dance) focusing on international dance styles mainly from the Middle East, Polynesia, and Spain, but I also have had opportunities to practice and perform many other styles from around the world many times for the communities that created them. 

I grew up right at the border between Mexico and the United States, crossing it often and experiencing life on both sides. There, and later with a second BA in Anthropology, I understood the economic, cultural, and personal interactions that take place between both countries. I realized that the ability to communicate and work together as a team with respect and understanding regardless of our differences is key to reach the maximum potential of an individual or of a region.
Just keep practicing and look for online videos of each dance form!
There are three classes that will require the students to bring extra supplies found at most homes (a piece of fabric, a hat, or a long skirt) as listed above, other than that, only comfortable clothes and a bottle of water are needed to attend the class each week.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This one is a movement class, so please make sure your learner has enough space to move (For example, extending arms and legs) without hitting furniture or other household items.
-The dance styles covered are a mild workout that rarely causes injuries, however, please be mindful of the physical health of your dancer before enrolling and stay close during the class in case they need your help. 
-We do have a warm-up section in the class and offer movement options through the lessons, but please consider contacting your family doctor AND myself before the class if your child has any previous injuries or health concerns in order to provide adaptations.
-Have your dancer wear comfortable clothing that shows their movement (For example, yoga pants and tank top). 
-Have water nearby
-This is an inclusive class for every body. One of my goals is to promote self-esteem and growth mentality so, all dancers are welcomed!
