We invite you to be part of a very special collaboration between Ballet Forte New Jersey, and the Waldo Gonzales School of Performing Arts Puerto Rico.
This collaboration, “Bailar al Sol” – dancing into the sun – will unite young dancers from New Jersey and Puerto Rico in a dance exchange program, culminating with a gala performance in February 2019. Andrea Kramer, Ballet Mistress and owner of Ballet Forte, and Waldo Gonzales, owner of Waldo Gonzales Performing Arts School, will be joining to create a cross-cultural experience for young dancers. By forming a partnership to build a strong foundation, Bailor al Sol will promote and encourage the Arts in Puerto Rico.
Our goal is to raise funding for scholarship programs, create an affordable environment for young dancers and artists to learn, thrive and grow. We believe that the cultural life of Puerto Rico should be based on collaboration of all parts of a community: private citizens, businesses, municipal government, schools and other organizations. Through creative partnerships, Ballet Forte in collaboration with Coqui Charities seeks to integrate the arts into all aspects of the Puerto Rican community and create an open and affirming atmosphere for creativity. By making a contribution to this project, it gives you an opportunity to show your commitment and support to the Arts community and people of Puerto Rico. The gala evening performance will be comprised of dance, music, and art.
