Mission Statement

Borinquen Dance Theatre helps youth build the desire to succeed through the dicipline of dance.To do this we must:

Offer a diverse range of youth, many from economically challenged families, the opportunity to develop and practice discipline through the mental and physical training afforded by a rigorous holistic dance program;

Cultivate leadership skills and teamwork through training, structure, cultural education, and positive role models;

Foster excellence through high expectations while balancing the demands of academic success with the methods of a disciplined rehearsal, training, and performance program.

Description

Borinquen Dance Theatre helps youth build the desire to succeed through the discipline of dance. Borinquen Dance Theatre provides at-risk Hispanic and other youth in the Rochester region with cultural opportunities that broaden their educational, artistic, career and personal horizons. We position youth for success by fostering in them to embrace a dedicated work ethic and sense of personal discipline to master intricate dance movement, the desire to succeed in school, and to make good decisions about health, wellness, and relationships. Students express their confidence and joy of accomplishment through the performance of Puerto Rican folkloric and Latin contemporary dance.
