Youth Dance Workshop

The UC Davis Danzantes del Alma dance troupe will provide folklórico dance instruction to elementary through high school age youth at its annual Youth Dance Workshop. A half-day workshop is offered for children ages 5 - 7 and a full-day workshop is available for youth ages 8 - 18. Parents are welcome to join us during the class session as child care is not available for younger siblings during the morning session.

The workshop starts at 9:30 am for youth 8 - 18 and at 11:30 am for the youth 5 -7 years of age. At the end of the workshop the youth will be performing the song they learned in class for their friends and family. The performance is from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm and everyone in the community is welcome to come and watch our youth perform.

Registration is FREE. Registration packets in English and Spanish will be made available once the quarter starts again January 5th, 2009 in the Student Programs and Activities Center office, which is located in Memorial Union 457 (4th Floor).

Registration is due January 23, 2009. Enrollment is limited to the first 100 students. Walk-in registration is 15 minutes early only if space is available.
