This experience and necessity in her comunity motivated her, with the assistance of her board of directors, to fund what today is CLDA.
Currently, we are a 501©3 non-profit dance academy.



CLDA fue formada en el año 2011, cuando nuestra fundadora, Yaya, con varios años de experiencia como bailarina/coreógrafa fue invitada a formar algunas danzas folkloricas para organizaciones comunitarias, iglesias y asociaciones sin fines de lucro. Esta experiencia y necesidad comunitaria motivo a su fundadora, con asistencia de su junta directiva, a formar lo que hoy es CLDA.
​En el momento somos una organización sin fines de lucro reconocida por el gobierno federal.
