Today we got to visit Aldea for the second time! It was so great to be able to work with the same kids that we worked with yesterday, and it was really exciting to continue to build relationships with them. A huge part of our day focused on community building, as we taught a big class with students of all ages! There was a wonderful energy in the room with all of us together, and it was a moment that was truly special. Positive energy radiated through our class today and I hope we continue to work in this way as the week continues! The feeling in the classroom reminded me that dance is such a powerful and unifying art form, and inspired me to continue to utilize this art form to positively influence the lives of others. The kids in class opened up more today, and they responded so well. I felt a sense of unity as we continued with our classes, and hope the kids were impacted in a positive way. I loved the relationships formed, positivity felt, and community in the room! I can’t wait to teach more!
