Dance at the Julia De Burgos Cultural Arts Center

Our Dance and Choreography program is designed for ages 5 to 18. The main focus of  this class is on students having fun and enjoying dance as an everyday wellness activity while learning culture, teamwork, discipline, confidence, stage presence, and overall coordination. 

Dances include traditional, modern Latin, and hip hop. (Make sure to read about our Summer Ballet dance program below too...)

All of our dance groups will have many opportunities to perform at our events and events throughout the community.
