Youth Performance team

Piel Canela's youth Program was started by Joe Burgos sometime in 2006-2007. Coordinated by Ms. Arelis Beato, Director of Tropical Image dance company in Brooklyn our program was on its was to success. Ms. Beato taught for a few seasons before the start of our performance teams and the expansion into a program for classes for teens in June of 2008.For the first two seasons Mr. Jonathan Rodriguez helped to kick off our teens program while assisting our kids performance classes. This program continued its growth as the teens slowly began integrating into the adults classes. In an effort to challenge the children that were getting older On September 28 of 2012 it was decided Piel Canela would form a teens performance team. Haven't seen us peform yet?
