HOP Talks: A series of Talks about Being Hispanic in America
(Community Service)

HOP Talks Presents:

Bluegrass Youth Ballet and its founder and director, Adalhi Aranda. She is originally from Leon, Mexico; she trained under the Royal Academy of Dancing system and continued working in Guadalajara where she became a professional dancer and started teaching. Adalhi moved the US in 1994 and moved to Lexington in 1999. She has danced for Lexington Ballet, Ballet Theatre of Chicago and Kentucky Ballet Theatre, where she directed the Academy. In 2003, she created the Bluegrass Youth Ballet, a non-profit organization located in Lexington, KY. It was formed in order to satisfy the need for high quality dance education in a healthy, fun, and encouraging environment where the students are the priority and are given performance opportunities. They make dance accessible to all youth, regardless of socioeconomic status, through their work-study program. Apart from having three large performances per year, they also perform in several community events, giving students community service opportunities while promoting a feeling of "giving back" to the community.

HOP Talks is a speaker series that features professionals who work with Spanish-speaking communities and Latinx issues and culture in Kentucky. HOP Talks are sponsored by the Hispanic Outreach Project (HOP), CELTS, and the Spanish Language Program. This HOP Talk is co-sponsored by Berea College Dance Programs.
