Thirty kids aged 4 to 15 years old from Barangay Loyola Heights learned on April 17 the latest and hottest hip-hop moves from Dance Plus as they participated in Summer Rhythm, Araneta Center’s summer dance program for children. As part of corporate social responsibility, Araneta Center partnered with Miriam College and Alagang Kapatid Foundation (TV5’s social development arm) to allow kids from Daan Tubo, Park 7, and Marytown experience Summer Rhythm’s dance class. The activity aims to share the gift of dance to the children from the abovementioned communities and help its participants create memories that the children will cherish.
Launched on April 10 at Ali Mall, Summer Rhythm is Araneta Center’s summer dance program, which includes ballet and hip-hop classes for children aged 4 to 15 years old. The classes run every Tuesday and Friday from April 10 to May 18. Each session is held at the spacious Ali Mall Activity area, giving the participants ample space to move around and master their dance moves.
The classes are facilitated by instructors from Dance Plus. Known as studio without walls, Dance Plus goes where students are by partnering with schools condominiums, gyms and malls to bring ballet and hiphop closer to where families get together. By conducting dance classes at the Araneta Center this summer, Dance Plus aims to reach more children and give its participants a “childhood enriched through a heart that beats for dance.”
Every P1,000 single receipt purchase at any Araneta Center entitles kids to join Summer Rhythm. For more info, visit www.aranetacenter.net and www.danceplusph.com.
