Mr. Marcelo Sanna-Pickett has been a teacher at Legacy VAPA for several years and is the primary teacher and director of the Dance Academy. Sanna-Pickett holds a Master of Arts in Dance from California State University, Long Beach, and was a California League of Schools Teacher of the Year finalist. “As a dedicated, resourceful, and innovative educator, I strive to establish an atmosphere built on trust and rapport so students will be engaged and motivated to reach their potential.  It is my desire to balance individualized instruction with whole-class instruction to foster critical thinking and to facilitate the acquisition of life-long learning skills.  It is my belief that all students, with the help of innovative strategies and the right tools, have the ability to learn to their full potential.  It is my desire to make a positive difference in the lives of my students and help them recognize the value of physical activity as being both enjoyable and important for lifelong health.”
