Our goal is to ensure that children and teenagers have an opportunity to explore their talent in a safe and productive environment. The Company is based on the need of the inner city youth to have the culture of ballet as well as traditional dance taught to them by experienced professionals who ingrain the discipline, art form, cultural distinction and choreography needed to compete in shows bringing together youth of similar interests from other areas of the country. We have been recognized at a national level as a group that works with the community to inspire youth to learn and contribute to the preservation of Mexican Culture and Art.
