YOU CAN DANCE.

YOU CAN DANCE

This access program has had a positive impact on the integral development of children and youth. Participants have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and depth of the arts, connecting emotionally with others and themselves, acquiring social-emotional skills and abilities that promote integral development and well-being in different dimensions. 

This 2024 is the birth of a new YOU CAN DANCE as a pole of integrated dances with the objective of increasing its impact and reaching more people.

Mustakis Foundation.

Thanks to a partnership that began with the inauguration of Teatro del Lago in 2010, Fundación Mustakis has contributed to support the excellence and diversity of its season, in the field of dance and circus arts, as well as in educational outreach activities.

Since 2013 it implemented the program PUEDES BAILAR, an instance that sought to find a group identity, based on collaboration and collectivity, focusing on the human relationship in a context of artistic creation, in and through contemporary dance. This 2024 a new PUEDES BAILAR is born, becoming a pole of integrated dances.

Programs.

Our differentiating element has been the explicit statement of our formative mission from our beginnings to date: the conviction that through access to the arts we can contribute to improving people's quality of life and build a happier and more integrated society.

We carry out various training, access to the arts and improvement programs in order to fulfill our dreams and our essence as a theater.
