Money acquired from outside performances, as well as boutique sales will be set aside for the Alma Latina Scholarship. Alma Latina Scholarships are given out yearly. Graduates who have been in the group for two years or longer and are going to college may be possibly awarded a scholarship determined by the board. Scholarship awards vary each year depending upon outside performances and boutique sales.
In addition to our scholarship program, Alma Latina hosts a College Night every year in order to promote furthering education. Last year our teen dancers visited UCI campus. This year our teens worked on college applications and educational goals.
Alma Latina is a non-profit 501c (3) group based out of Long Beach, California that promotes self esteem and cultural awareness through the medium of dance. Our focus is on ballet folklorico mexicano. the group ranges from ages 3 years to adult. Alma Latina has presented dances from over 12 regions of Mexico. Our purpose is to educate and provide a pleasant, supervised experience for children and adults to learn the cultural and historical significance of folklorico (music, tradition, costume, celebrations, etc.), discipline of dance and appropriate social behaviors for involvement and participation in a group.
