Tutus Para Todas is currently working to provide support to many dance studios across the island. Here is some of our most recent work:
Tutus Para Todas & Danzactiva
Danzactiva, a small dance studio located in the heart of Old San Juan, is an incredible organization dedicated to providing a valuable dance education while celebrating inclusivity and the diverse cultural influences of Puerto Rico.
Along with a wide variety of classes such as ballet, flamenco, salsa, and Kathak (classical Indian dance), Danzactiva's special DanzaÉ program offers traditional Puerto Rican bomba dance classes to students with developmental disabilities. For over twenty-two years, director, Paulette Beauchamp, has maintained an inclusive artistic space that integrates professional musicians and dancers.
Tutus Para Todas has made possible the purchase of dance attire (special t-shirts) for students of Danzactiva's DanzaÉ program, the funding of a bomba dance instructor as well as a physical efficiency teacher, and supported the online capability during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Highlights from DanzActiva's Reopening Bomba Class:
Tutus Para Todas & EMBAE
Escuela Mayagüezana de Ballet y Artes Escenicas, a newly opened dance studio in Mayaguez, offers ballet, contemporary dance, jazz, dance fusion, and salsa classes to students of all ages and levels of experience.
Tutus Para Todas has funded the full scholarship of a young dancer at EMBAE. A talented 8-year-old student with lots of potential, she adores attending ballet classes and loves participating in performances like The Nutcracker. Now, this dancer is able to attend the classes she enjoys so much without any financial burdens thanks to your support!
