Breakdance

Planting Seeds aims to provide structured, and most importantly, fun activities for members of the community in Zone 3 in Guatemala City.  We currently offer two Breakdance classes where young girls and boys, between the ages of 11-16, can express themselves creatively through dance.  Our Breakdance classes are now run by Zone 3 community members, Yaqui and Dancy.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Encourage creative expression
  • Provide a healthy outlet for stress
  • Promote mental and physical health
  • Refine motor skills and coordination
  • Build confidence

In addition to the Breakdance classes, participants in the program perform a few times a year in front of a live audience.  This is one of the highlights of the program and gives them a time to shine!
