Grupo Animo is the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's resident youth theater company and consisting of youth (ages 13-18) members from all backgrounds and areas of San Antonio, and beyond. Under the mentorship of professional teaching artists and directors, Grupo Animo's company members are guided through a three-week summer theater experience, allowing youth a platform to make their voices heard through thought-provoking, engaging and culturally relevant, performance-based Teatro. 



"It is critical, even more so now in light of recent events in Uvalde, that students are taught to use their natural talents to creatively express themselves, working cooperatively to share their thoughts and feelings about the world they live in," said Jorge Piña, Guadalupe Theater Manager. "We strive to provide a safe space for our members to feel comfortable no matter what race, sex, economic background, or sexual orientation. Lastly, we understand that through Chicano, Latino, and Native American arts and culture, we can revolutionize how we imagine the world."
