Tierra Adentro Dance Ensemble
The TANM Dance Ensemble is an audition-based student dance company directed by Joaquin Encinias, Deanna Encinias, and Veronica Torres. The Dance Ensemble was created in 2012 as a way for TANM's elite dancers to intensify their study and to provide performance opportunities for students. There are currently 30 students ranging from grades 8-12 actively performing in the student company. As part of TANM's unique charter and mission, the students receive training in flamenco music, dance, and cante as part of their regular school day. The TANM Dance Ensemble is an after-school program, which allows the dancers to deepen their artistic pursuit of flamenco under the guidance of the Ensemble's Artistic Directors.
