Meet and collaborate with other high school dancers abroad.

JUNTOSVirtual Dance Pals

High school dance students, ages 13-17 can connect with dancers abroad as a JUNTOS Dance Pal! We will partner you up with a high school dancer abroad for an opportunity to learn from each other and create together. For four weeks, you will meet regularly with your “Dance Pal” virtually, and collaborate to create your very own dance. You will share ideas, work together, and ultimately choreograph a final piece that will be recorded, edited, and presented in our final showcase. See the schedule below!

What do Dance Pals do?

In this program high school dancers from the United States and Oaxaca, Mexico are partnered up and introduced through JUNTOS. Over the course of 6 weeks, the Dance Pals pairs will collaborate via an online platform to create a dance. Each Dance Pal will be responsible for sending us weekly videos of the movement they have created and rehearsed with their Dance Pal that week. After we receive all videos, we will edit each pair of Dance Pals’ recordings together and create a final product to be presented in our final Dance Pals showing on Thursday, November 12th.
