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!
