YOUTH CLASSES: Introduce your child to the rich culture of the Mexican Ballet Folklore world with the help from the best mentors at Xel Ha Escuela de Danza. Through our student-first approach we work with your child to set them up for success starting with their self-confidence, self-respect, and team work mentality. Since 1970, Xel-Ha Escuela de Danza has seen children grow into young women and men, to business professionals, to parents, to mentors and coaches. Xel-Ha stands by their developed talent and continues to see success time and time again.

Featured Student Spotlight:
Alyssa Calderon | 15 year old Sophomore at T.F. South High School:

Alyssa has been dancing since the 2nd grade and and in 2014 she enrolled at Xel-Ha Escuela de Danza. She started as a beginner and six weeks later was promoted to the senior dance group. Alyssa’s determination and dedication to push herself to learn quick and work hard allowed her to pick up the dance group’s choreography and now is performing in the group’s main events. Away from dance, Alyssa finds additional motivation and competition in gymnastics and especially softball. Since 8 years old, Alyssa has played in softball summer leagues and recently she has been voted to play on several all-star teams competing against some of the best across the midwest.

Today, her home for softball is at T.F. South in Lansing, Illinois.Because of Xel-Ha, she has been able to build great confidence and self-discipline that has helped her become a standout student-athlete. As many of Xel-Ha students, Alyssa helps out and gives back to the youth by providing guidance and experience to the younger students. Alyssa is currently undecided on which college she will attend but is currently interested in possibly majoring in Audiology due to her unilateral hearing loss. Wherever Alyssa decides to go, Xel-Ha will be there to support her and will always be a home to her and her family.
