2018 Outreach and Cultural Exchange

LBV campaign b.PNG

We are so excited to be able to go back to Mexico and NYC in 2018! 

Please help us reach our goal of $10,000 to help give the gift of dance. 

HELP us share our passion for dance and culture while serving and educating at-risk communities in Mexico, and paying tribute to the iconic Puerto Rican community in New York City! 

In New York City, the Latin Ballet will be celebrating the Puerto Rican communities' stories of struggle, determination and assimilation during Puerto Rican heritage month with NuYoRican.

The artists of the Latin Ballet will be in Mexico with performing MUJERES, visiting impoverished urban and rural communities, teaching and performing at schools, centers for youth with special needs, hospitals, and nursing homes. We will also be exchanging cultural dance styles with The Mexican National Folklore Company. (Contemporary, Flamenco, Hip Hop, and Mexican Folklore). 

It is our aim to forge connections through the universal experience of dance.

Say no more, Latin Ballet takes pride in giving back to the community, but a lot of our ability to do so is because of corporate sponsorships and grants. We cherish all those who have given to us and we strive to build strong and healthy relationships with our donors and our community. If you or your company is interested in such giving, we would love to hear from you!

We are proud of our educational programs, our dedicated instructors and artists who dance with and for us, and we are delighted that we have touched and helped so many through the art of dance.

students

A majority of the contributions we receive go directly to at-risk and low-income families. These funds allow these children to become a part of something special and provides a growth that exposes them to the arts, boosts their self-confidence and teaches them about the world they live in. Every student we touch is an achievement for the arts. We want to continue the success of educating through dance and culture, but we have many expenses throughout the year—all the things required for us to put on productions, give scholarships, the space we need for classes, costumes, the ability to be able to travel to schools and to pay our staff.  We love what we do and we hope you will join us this #GivingTuesday and help us make a difference.

'We were honored to have Latin Ballet of Virginia come to our school and so grateful for your generous support.  Many of the students at our school have never attended a live arts performance and for some, this was their very first exposure to the Arts.  Many of the students have never taken a dance class and I saw their self-confidence build before my eyes as they tried each dance step.  Many of the students were completely unfamiliar with Hispanic dance and culture and they learned so much about the history of Latin America and Spanish exploration through this tour.  These workshops and the performance by the Latin Ballet was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and eye-opening in so many ways for many of our students.
