My name is Itztla Belen Gutierrez.   I have been dancing with my mother, Yvonne B. Gutierrez  since 1999.   My first dance class was  at age 6.   I am a girl with dreams and represented other young girls like myself as New York's National American Miss Pageant's 2006 Preteen Spokesmodel.  I love learning different routines and performing for various community benefits. It’s very exciting  to perform in different places and meet all kinds of people.  My mother has inspired me to dance salsa and flamenco. In these years of training I have learned so much and will continue on my journey toward adulthood. It takes a lot of practice, endurance and responsibility to become a professional dancer!  My music apprecation has been widen with my dance experience.  I am proud to be a violin student at LaGuardia Performing Arts High School.


Now I attend NYU!  - 2012
