My name is Candralina Sanchez I am the dance teacher here at Vista Grande High School. I have been dancing since I could walk but didn’t start taking classes until high school. I loved it so much I thought why not help others feel the same way about dance that I do. It was such a release and way to escape reality, yet at the same time I could let it all out expressively through movement and music. I went to Arizona State University and received my bachelor’s degree in dance education. I took a year off in between my junior and senior year of college to be with my daughter after she was born. After she turned one, I went back to school, finished my degree and obtained my teaching certificate soon after. I have been a sub, paraprofessional, and even taught P.E. before I received the job of my dreams teaching dance here at VGHS.
