Support COVid-19 emergency relief

The majority of our families come from situations of low income and poverty. Most parents of our scholarship students work in the informal economy (selling trinkets on the streets, washing clothing, working in construction or being a hired hand). As Lake Atitlán, Guatemala is a tourism-based economy, the majority of our families have been left jobless without government support.

Since March 2020, we have been distributing food staples bimonthly to our families in need as well as providing internet access to families who otherwise would not be able to participate in our uplifting online classes and activities. This is only possible with your generous financial support. Everything helps!
Help provide food to these families!

Sponsor a Student:
Become a ballet godparent

With just $20-$50/month, you can provide monthly dance classes and academic support to a student in need as well as cover all dancewear and performance expenses!

Many of our scholarship students come from very difficult walks of life. Ballet is a place where they can thrive, regardless of life circumstances. Scholarship students are expected to maintain an 80 point average or have school grades increasing to maintain at 80 point average. Math and English homework help are offered to scholarship students as well as assistance purchasing school supplies and locating resources. If students struggle raising grades, a goal setting system is implemented.

If you or your child is a dancer and would like to serve as a dance friend/mentor, this is also a possibility. This intercultural exchange experience, will allow both parties to see what it is like in dance spaces and holidays in different parts of the world!
