End of Year Achievements

Circus Performance

Dear friends,

We had a great 2011; the kids successfully completed a year of dance and theater instruction and developed artistic skills that they were able to show their parents, teachers and friends in an end of year production.  The end of year presentation consisted of a circus act, a play and impressive dance performances that left a cheering crowd.

The children also participated in an intensive tutoring program focused on reading and math, which has already helped the kids increase their math scores in school. We are all very proud of their commitment to excellence and their hard work this year.

This year 13 kids successfully finished the program and as the program is ongoing, we will keep these 13 and add at least 20 more!
We are currently holding auditions and interviews for the start of the program next year so stay in touch for reports on new activities ranging from performing arts classes to educational field trips and new tutoring methods.

From Fundacion Calicanto: thank you for your support!
