The Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud is sponsoring many workshops around the area to keep youth engaged while out of school.
Some such activities are dance classes at the Taller Nacional de Danza. This establishment will provide several workshops for children and adolescents to promote the art of body movement. The workshops will be extended until Feb. 1.
Participants have several class options to choose from. They include creative movement for ages 3 to 5 years, pre-ballet for 6 to 8 years and ballet for ages 9 to 13. Those 12 years old and older also have the choice to go straight to ballet, contemporary dance, jazz, folk dances, belly dance, hip-hop, aerial acrobatics and Afro-Caribbean dance, said the cultural ministry.
Each workshop costs 10,000 colons, a bit more than $20. Taller Nacional de Danza is located in Barrio Escalante, 75 metros west of the Rotonda El Farolito.
