We’re excited to share these new online initiatives from the Dandelion Artists roster to help spread a little music, adventure, and sunshine to all the kiddos out there, and their grownups too.

Check their site weekly for updated schedules of live-streamed classes.
As we are dealing with this strange time, we need to do things to keep our spirits up and nurture the creative spirit. Since all of Cybele Peña’s workplaces have been closed, she has used creativity to overcome fear and sadness and wants to share with you what she is working on.
Dance with Miss Cybele online via:
- live zoom classes for both adults and children
- donation-based, pre-recorded dance tutorials for big kids through adults to learn dances alone or together
- a package of six, 40-minute classes for younger kids (ideal for preschool through about 3rd grade, but it’s flexible and families are encouraged to join in the silly fun.) They include new choreography in each lesson, a guided warmup, some creative games, and a story or reflection time. The lessons are released on Tuesday and Friday and then the kids can watch and re watch each lesson as many times as they like!
transcenDANCE welcomes individuals of all ages and all types, shapes and sizes of families to participate in a fun, lively and expressive movement experience with the talented, fun-loving Teaching Artist, Cybele Pena.
