My goal is to bring art to as many children and young people as possible, teach them that through music and dance people can acquire discipline and motivation; they can express different feelings and above all, show them that they can, in a physical and mental way, develop many skills. It would be a tool where they can balance their lives and find a way to cope with difficult situations in case they were presented, avoiding to find other exits in these situations.
