Dear KLA Dance Students and Families, 


Welcome back to our 2021-2022 school year! I hope you had a wonderful summer despite all of the challenges occurring in the world. I have managed to stay safe and healthy and I hope you have too! I have been spending a great deal of time outdoors in the sun teaching tap dance and yoga. I have also been performing and playing music at the park on a regular basis! This has helped me through these times of uncertainty.

I’m so excited to be back dancing with the students at KLA! Even though it will be a different/new experience, it will be fun and creative with lots of learning, collaborative projects, and performances!

Despite these new changes, I am confident that KLA Dancers will continue to be amazing leaders!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at any point during the year. You can reach me by email at [email protected]


Best Regards, 

Ms. Gomez




Estimados Estudiantes y Familias de danza de KLA:


¡Bienvenidos de nuevo a nuestro año escolar 2021-2022! Espero que hayan tenido un verano maravilloso a pesar de todos los desafíos que ocurren en el mundo. Me las he arreglado para mantenerme sana y segura y espero que usted también lo haya hecho. He pasado mucho tiempo al aire libre bajo el sol enseñando classes de Tap, Ballet, y Jazz. ¡También he estado actuando y tocando música en el parque de forma regular! Esto me ha ayudado a superar estos tiempos de incertidumbre.

¡Estoy tan emocionada de volver a bailar con los estudiantes de KLA! ¡Aunque será una experiencia nueva / diferente, será divertida y creativa con mucho aprendizaje, proyectos colaborativos y espectaculos!

A pesar de estos nuevos cambios, estoy segura de que los bailarines de KLA seguirán siendo líderes.

No dude en comunicarse conmigo si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud en cualquier momento durante el año. Puede comunicarse conmigo por correo electrónico a [email protected]


Atentamente,

Sra. Gomez
