Community Arts Partnerships
Community Arts Partnerships engage and enrich communities through innovative experiences in dance and culture.
A Note from Community Engagement Director, Natalia Mesa:
"We are working relentlessly to continue to bring the joy of dance to our communities and to highlight the power of the Latino culture. Join us as we build meaningful ways of interaction, create new channels of expression, and expose the arts field as a beacon of resilience during this unprecedented time."
"When we reach out to communities who are underserved, we bring possibilities to those who may never have dreamed about or seen dance as art. They are given a chance to consider a different perspective and perhaps develop an aesthetic. Arts education is a transformative experience."
- Eduardo Vilaro, Artistic Director & CEO
