Nuestras Raices Inc works to promote a healthy living lifestyle by providing arts, empowerment programs and initiatives. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact Delaware. Through the arts, partnerships, advocacy and health initiatives, our volunteer team work each day to contribute their part to the greater good by working with the kids and youth in the community to provide health activities and initiatives related to the arts.
This is why we started our Delaware Art Kids Network! DKAN's purpose is to provide the children and youth of our community means to be able to get involved in arts and music. We believe that encouraging them to express themselves through arts and music will be inspiring for them.
This year, as a part of our DKAN program, we have created the new Grupo Calle Cuatro dance group. A group who's name was voted by our local community, was created to encourage our youth and kids to get involved in Hispanic cultural dancing. The performed for their very first time at this year's 2021 Wilmington Hispanic Festival! Thanks to the Underground Studio and the Latin American Community Center, they were able to get the dance lessons and space to practice to make this come to life for them!
