Latin Ballet Offers Educational Programs


We Invite Educators of Virginia to Participate

Create and strengthen connections to Hispanic/Latin American cultures through innovative and immersive dance-inspired education and performances that affect positive and sustainable change in people’s lives.

The Latin Ballet of Virginia offers many educational programs to Virginia educators. Our educational programs received the Jane Baskerville Award for the best community education program for World Languages in Chesterfield County Public Schools, Virginia and the Best Artists in Residency for Multicultural Programs Award, in Cabarrus County, North Carolina. 

We would love to provide elective or after-school programs to the students of your schools. We also offer programming for school field trips! Here a few of our programs:

Ana Ines Barragan King, Antonio Hidalgo Paz and the other dancers that accompanied them are truly Ambassadors of Culture. We are so fortunate to have them as part of our community in Central Virginia. What an honor! After the activity, as their teacher leading the event, I felt like I had spoken the language of the heart of the students for the first time in a very long time. They LONG for opportunities such as this! An incredible experience!
