I can't believe this, but I think we actually have something here in Richmond Virginia that I can't find (at least on the internet) in either Westchester or even the city.

We have a latin ballet company - Latin Ballet of Virginia - the owner is from south america and was a professional dancer and instructor there. there is a small professional company and they also have dance classes for children and adults. My daughter, who is not latin (she is asian) is taking flamenco (she is six years old) and not only does she love it, but it's been great therapy for her sensory processing disorders.

so I just assume that moving to Westchester there's got to be similiar programs but I haven't found anything.

I'm not interested in enrolling her in what a friend of mind calls (she has a degree in dance and knows her stuff) the "dolly dinkle dance schools" - I'd like to keep her going in flamenco and perhaps other latin dance styles.

anyone know of a place like that? we could go into the city on Saturdays if that's where we have to go . . .

Default Ballet Hispanico

That's what it's called, and it is located on West 89th St. in the city.

I actually saw some of our local latin ballet folks this weekend, and one of them told me about it, and I found their website.

Just thought I'd post this in case anyone was interested.

My daughter is not hispanic, in fact, she is asian, but the latin ballet culture and method of teaching and performing has really impressed me, in case anyone has a child who is interested in dance. There are classes that most boys would find fun and interesting too, I think.

There is one on the edge of Bronxville/Eastchester. You'll have to e-mail them at NYRhythmKids@aol.com

Hope this helps.....
