Fellowship Artists in the Baker Baum Hall



La Jolla Music Society is committed to music education. For over 20 years, we’ve offered free music instruction to students in San Diego County through our after-school program, the Community Music Center. We’ve launched remote learning to our students and have opened enrollment in all classes for students in 4th grade and above: voice, guitar, piano, strings, woodwind, brass, and percussion.

We are unable to provide free instruments at this time, but we hope you will join us for lessons if you already have access to an instrument at home!

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. 


Dance for PD, a program of the Mark Morris Dance Group, is providing on-demand access to their full digital class library, free of charge in addition to live-streamed community meet-ups for shared conversation and movement experiences.

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.

Intergenerational Family Dance is an opportunity to get your groove on to some good tunes where people of all ages can shake off the worries of the day and get your blood flowing in a playful and rhythmic way!
