SENIOR PROJECT: project free movement - offering free dance courses for youths

monica.sevilla@academicarts.org

My name is Monica, and I am 19 years old. I am a senior at Academic Arts High School. Before attending Academic Arts, I was attending Henry Sibley High School. My family is from Mexico, but I was born here in Minnesota. I have one older brother, a twin sister, and three little sisters, so there are six of us in total.

For my senior project, I would like to offer a free dance class to younger children attending local elementary schools. Dance classes are expensive, and parents may not be able to afford them, which is why so many kids do not get into dance. I would like to offer these classes to invite and introduce the art of dance to our community. I will be hosting classes at Academic Arts High School, and I hope to draw talent and experience from local instructors who are willing to help lend a hand.
