Flamenco Dancers From New Horizons Perform At WEF

New Horizons Flamenco dancers at the Winter Equestrian Festival.

New Horizons Elementary School, a dual-language International Spanish Academy, enrolls approximately 450 students in its dual-language immersion program. The school offers many after school extracurricular programs, including Flamenco dancing.

The Flamenco dancers pay homage to the cultural heritage of Spain, which the school actively partners with as part of its distinction as being an International Spanish Academy. The Flamenco group is sponsored and directed by teachers Betty Baez and Erin Santiago and performs at various events both in school and outside of school. Recently, the dancers were invited to perform under the lights of the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center as part of the Winter Equestrian Festival. The students enjoyed their performance, and the school is proud of their efforts and the way that they represent the school’s diversity, character and multiculturalism.

New Horizons is proud to be a beacon of diversity in the Wellington community and invites parents interested in their child becoming bilingual and learning about Hispanic cultures around the world to apply to the choice lottery via the Palm Beach County School District Choice Programs application. Although the window for applications has concluded for this school year, the application window opens annually, and New Horizons encourages parents to apply to participate in this one-of-a-kind program.
