Outreach and Cultural Exchange!

Please support us with your donation

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.

We need to raise $10,000 to be able
to make these tours happen.


Every donation to this project helps us promote diversity and overcome the political divisions keeping communities apart.

We will be going to
New York City in October, 
and Mexico in November!

“NuYoRican Girl” is a passionate tribute to the Puerto Rican Diaspora community who share similar stories of their migration to the United States. Watching my ancestors’ come back alive on stage was a riveting experience. Words cannot express how honored I am to be collaborating with the spectacular Latin Ballet of Virginia on this inspiring portrayal of mi gente. My heart brims with Boricua pride every single time I see this show.” Julia Torres Barden, author of “NEWYORICANGIRL…Surviving my Spanglish Life."

NuYoRican, portrays the true stories of thousands of migrants to the United States and their triumph as they faced discrimination, assimilation, and political stigma upon their arrival after World  War II.
