We are excited to host July Dance Camp on Fridays beginning July 7th, 12:30 – 2:30 pm at Yoga Sala. Tuesday Faust and Monica McClelland collaborate this month on dance choreography, stories, props, and music, creating an engaging program for students ages 3 to 10 years. Yoga Sala, a moving arts studio in Questa, is home to our nonprofit program, Sala Reach. Sala Reach sponsors kids’ dance and music classes and more.
Tuesday Faust, from Taos Dance Academy, teaches Kids’ Ballet weekly. Monica McClelland currently teaches Contemporary Dance (adults and teens ages 15+) on Saturday mornings at the studio.
Dance Camp includes dance instruction, crafts, snacks, dance games, and a performance (TBA). The program is recommended for kids ages 3 to 10, but younger and older students are welcome. The theme this year will focus on animals!
Dance Camp is offered freely. If you wish to make a donation, a sliding scale of $5-$20 per two-hour class or $20-$80 for all four Fridays may be used. A tax-deductible donation can be made at the studio or on our website (yogasalaquesta.org/nonprofit/donate/).
Sala Reach sponsors weekly classes including, yoga, qigong, and tai chi, as well as a special monthly Wellness Series, and music events. Our nonprofit creates equitable access to assure that all offerings can be attended by all community members. Our classes can be attended freely or by donation; other forms of reciprocity and exchange are welcome. Sala Reach also sponsors individuals who may attend any studio class freely, such as kickboxing, or other yoga classes.
Our mission is to cultivate a diverse community of learners, moving arts teachers, performers, and audiences from rural northern New Mexico and make dance, yoga, martial arts and opportunities for creative expression and experience accessible for all ages and abilities promoting health and connection.
Sala Reach is a program of Localogy, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. In addition to offering weekly classes freely to the community, we collaborate with local organizations such as QuestaStories, Questa Creative Council, LEAP, Twirl, and Vida del Norte Coalition’s Summer Vida Camp.
