Bailando! What is the Latin American dance scene in Vancouver? | FREE event

October 27, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

DanceHouse has partnered with the Vancouver Latin American Cultural Centre to ask, “What is the Latin American dance scene in Vancouver?”. Join us for this free event featuring demonstrations from four local Latin American artists and a panel discussion as we explore this intriguing question together. This event is part of Latin Expressions, VLACC’s celebration of Latin American Heritage month.

The event will take place on October 27th from 7 -8:30 pm at the UBC – Robson Square auditorium. First, enjoy a series of short demonstrations featuring local dancers performing in various styles. Second, a conversation led by Francesca Piscopo (DanceHouse) and Danais Yera (VLACC) with dancers Salome Nieto, Davi Rodrigues (Lamondance), Luis Garcia (Nahualli Folklore) and Sonia Medel, on the richness and diversity of the Latin American dance scene here in Vancouver and a discussion of what it is like to practice their art.

Join us after the panel discussion for the opportunity to mingle with the artists and speakers over refreshing drinks. Register for FREE at [link TBC]
