Educational Initiatives

From 1994 to 2000 Floricanto's chamber ensemble was part of the Music Center on Tour Education Division and the Orange County Performing Arts Center educational program, helping to instill pride and awareness for the Mexican culture in the children of Los Angeles, reaching about 100,000 children over that period of time.

The Floricanto Institute-Danza Floricanto/USA runs an after school program at Sunrise Elementary School in Los Angeles Unified School District. Through this partnership Floricanto provides four instructors for the school's after school program while the class functions as an incubator for the company as part of this partnership. This partnership is now 9 years old.
