Ballet Hispanic of the Arts

Maestra Victoria Garcia


I was born and raised in Dallas, Tx. My dancing career began when I was 3 years old at Joy’s School of Dance where I learned jazz, tap, and ballet. With this company, I practiced, performed, and competed for four years. I, also attended an exploratory arts academy where I was trained in african dance styles, clogging, ballet, and ballet folklorico. After this, I joined the Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico Company, where I was a part of the Children’s and Junior’s performing company for nine years. Throughout these nine years, I assisted and volunteered at multiple summer dance programs for children in grades pre-k through fifth. Over the years, I have had the privilege of studying and learning from: Marco Raygoza, Marco Ozuna, Oscar Zapata, Alvaro Rosales, Alyssa Rubio, Daniel Alvarado, and Susan Savarese.

 

I graduated from the School of Science and Engineering, which is ranked ninth in the nation. Now, I am attending Southern Methodist University and pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I am a member of the CHAS (College Hispanic American Students) organization, FYSH (First Year Student Homes), and Ware Commons Council. Dance and education are two of the things I value the most. I will continue to learn and grow both academically and artistically throughout my university career. My goal is to pass on the knowledge and passion I have gained throughout these past 15 years to the younger generation.
