Tutus Para Todas & Danzactiva

Tutus Para Todas has worked to support Danzactiva through the COVID-19 pandemic.

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 the 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.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, director of Danzactiva, Paulette Beauchamp, has continued to provide free online classes for students with developmental disabilities.

                                       Below, two students share their experience in the program:

"Jean Carlos Rodríguez Castillo is an 18 yr, old with Autism, who is hyperactive and has difficulty concentrating. Last August he began joining (online) the free bomba (folk dance) classes that Danzactiva offers for people with disabilities. To his mother's surprise, Dance transformed Jean Carlos and opened a door to a world where he manages to concentrate for longer periods, while learning new things, exercising, improving his coordination and socializing with new friends.” (From Danzactiva.com)
