Why take Folkorico Classes?
“The power of the native dance, the power of these influences that have come into our days, this is what makes the folklore so rich. Not just steps, it all has a meaning.” – Amalia Hernandez (https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1991-09-20-ca-2644-story.html)
“So my ballet is children’s games, games of chance, games of love, and games of death,” she said, “because life is but a game.” – Amalia Hernandez (https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1991-09-20-ca-2644-story.html)
GRAFF LAB provides art, theater, film, music, sport and dance workshops opportunities for all ages. Our experienced instructors and committed community partners offer guidance and open studios for a variety of mediums and skill levels. In addition, we collaborate with renowned local arts organizations for programs, special events, and performances. We organized events where participants get to show their skill, knowledge and talent to the local and large community. All workshops support creativity, collaboration and a sense of family.
Our workshops teach people how to express themselves, and they can also be a tool through which people with disabilities can communicate. Many students suffer from shyness when they start attending classes and gradually become more confident as they find ways to express. In addition to teaching self-expression, our workshops help our community as a whole in self-knowledge and understanding. Students also find long lasting friends, as well as the parents.
Our workshops provide a place for exploration and creativity. We believe our studio and facilities at GRAFF LAB are vital for a healthy neighborhood. We nurture and encourage all members in our community to participate.
