The general outcome of both workshops is for kids to learn most of the elements about a particular component of the Venezuelan culture from its history, costumes, instruments, to their dancing, giving them a wider cultural awareness as well as the understanding of concepts such as musicality, beat, rhythm and body movements as part of their artistic and language expression.
