Cinco Ranch Branch Library Hosts Hip-Hop & Enrichment Workshop for Teens

Instructor Rosie Barron

July 2024

In conjunction with Fort Bend County Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will host a special workshop for teens, “The Beauty Within: Hip-Hop Dance,” on Saturday, July 20, from 11:00 to 11:45 am, in the Meeting Room.

In this workshop, Young Audiences of Houston teaching artist Rosie Barron will help teens realize that the beauty that is within Hip Hop is also in themselves. While teaching a clean style of Hip-Hop dance that is fun and challenging, Barron will be instilling value, confidence, and motivation to stand out and stand apart.

Barron has had formal training in ballet from the Houston Ballet, modern dance from METdance, and has also taken hip-hop classes at Planet Funk for several years.

This program, as well as refreshments, are made possible courtesy of the Friends of the Cinco Ranch Branch Library.

Recommended for teens entering grades 9-12, the program is free and open to the public.
