Meet Jovahna Solalindez!

Jovahna started in the Everybody Dance!program about 14 years ago. She will major in dance at UCLA this upcoming Fall to continue her dance education and pursue her future goals. Here are some insights from Jovahna about her journey.

How did you get started at Everybody Dance! ?

When I was little I loved to dance to whatever music my parents were playing around the house. My dad came across Everybody Dance when he was picking my mom up from work one day. Everybody Dance! was very affordable for my family who has always lived in a low-income community; compared to a lot of dance companies in LA that are too expensive. My dad enrolled me at Everybody Dance before I was four years old. I began to take pre-ballet classes once I turned four and have been learning more than one dance form since then.

“Everybody Dance! gives our community access to the arts at an affordable price. Not all parents can afford to have their children in a dance academy. Because my daughter chose dance as a form of extracurricular activity, she was able to get into one of the top private schools of California "
