The Community Arts Partnerships education philosophy embraces a culturally relevant methodology that encourages the research of Latinx/a/o expressions, history, and legacies through the work of artists, dancers, musicians, and choreographers while supporting a student-centered approach, where the student shapes and informs the educational experience. We embrace the cultural intersectionality of our communities in order to affirm existing ideas of what it means to be Latinx/a/o and re-envision a contemporary voice for the representation of that identity. Our holistic programs immerse students in the technical training of traditional and current Latinx/a/o dance forms by inviting them to celebrate diversity and connect with the community.
