Jasmine Ybarra, a 6-year-old student in an El Paso ISD school is one of 350 or more students who will be performing in Houston on Sept. 27.

The group will be performing for the Texas Board of Education, which will be attended by several thousand educators and school board representatives, including superintendent of all Texas schools.

The ECISD Director of Fine Arts was instructed to pick the best El Paso ISD students of Fine Arts to perform and entertain the crowd during the Houston convention.

There will be different groups from all the different schools within the El Paso ISD going to Houston including a symphony orchestra band with over 100 students, a beautiful choir group from a middle school, a mariachi group from a high school, a folklorico of teenagers from another one of the high schools in El Paso, another orchestra from Coronado and the Ballet Folklorico from Rosa Guerrero Elmentary School that includes Jasmine's group.

She is the youngest student in the whole group.

She is a dance student in the famous Rosa Guerrero, Internacional Ballet Folklorico of El Paso. She has been a student of Ballet Folklorico for one year, advancing from beginner to intermediate and to the advance team in one short year.

Little Jasmine has been selected as a student of the Fine Arts of the El Paso ISD.

She enjoys learning cultural dancing under the direction of the Rosa Guerrero dance teachers. She is familiar with regional dances from Chiapas, Jalisco, Tabasco and Colimas. She was selected from her group to attend the Mariachi Conference held annually in El Paso.

She is active in Brownie Girl Scout Troop #655, and plays soccer with the American Youth Soccer Organization, attends Catechism class on Mondays where Father Trine Fuentes is pastor and she hopes to make her First Holy Communion soon and later try out for professional dancing.
