Beyond Workshop Series
R.Evolución Latina’s professional and leadership
development program for adult artists.
We are thrilled to report that the Beyond Workshop Series 2012 was a huge success! Our scholarship recipients truly dared to go beyond with us, challenging themselves inside and outside of class, creating a community of connected, gifted activists. From the auditions back in February/March to our current volunteer and outreach opportunities, those involved with the Beyond Workshop Series have transcended their perceived limitations to make a difference through art, both for themselves and for their communities. Some of our BWS students can be found in the upcoming workshop production of Amigo Duende: A New Musical, Music/Lyrics by Joshua Henry and directed/choreographed by R.Evolución Latina’s Founder/Director, Luis Salgado!
The Dance Program participants had the opportunity to study with no less than ten different Teaching Artists who filled our classroom with wonderful energy and a rare diversity of styles: Salsa, Body Percussion, Ballet, Musical Theatre, Contemporary, Hip-hop, Lyrical, Street/Funk, Yoga, and Limón Technique.
One of our talented professionals, Valeria Cossu, not only taught her own classes, but also participated in the other classes taught by her peers, setting a wonderful example. Monica Delgado, the Project Leader for the Dance Program, demonstrated true leadership qualities, and she organized a wonderful final presentation, incorporating our dancers and what they’d learned over the course of the program, for our culminating celebration event.
Today was so much fun! The routines were amazing and I learned so much about myself as a dancer and person. I want you to know how much I truly appreciate this experience and how blessed I am to have met you all. Thank you for your support, time, and understanding. (BWS Student)
