In 2016 she achieved level C2 (mastery, Common European Framework) via examination. She has several years of experience leading children’s summer and after-school programs for French.

Notes:
1. Attendance at both kids courses: Children may attend both the French & Ballet or Salsa & Spanish only if a parent is present when in attendance more than 6 hours per week (as per rules established by the Municipality of Anchorage).
2. Modification to our cancellation policy: As a general rule, Anaya Latin Dance offers no refunds. However, we understand that these are uncertain times. Therefore, for our kids classes, the sign up cost is just $1 and the remaining fees are charged only on August 2nd, just before the course start. If the kids class is cancelled by Anaya Latin Dance prior to August 2nd due to the Covid-19 pandemic or any other reason, or if the parent cancels their child’s registration in writing (email: anayalatindance@gmail.com) before July 26th, then remaining $99 charge for the course will not occur. We hope this offers parents some peace of mind!
3. Coronavirus mitigation: Please look for information via e-mail concerning Covid-19 mitigations closer to the course start.
