Parent Testimonial
"I think you have a real jewel of an idea in surrounding the children not only with the dance and music of a place, but also with a real sense of adventure and love of other cultures. When we walked into Miss Lana's studio yesterday to the sound of coquis, it truly felt like we had left NYC and traveled to Puerto Rico. I believe many parents would love nothing more than to instill a love of travel and respect for other cultures, and I have seen no one teach it the way Ballet Hispánico does.”
