    CONTRA-TIEMPO: Community “Get Down”

    A joyous community dance jam where dancers lead participants in various Afro-Latin and urban forms, salsa, rumba, samba and hip-hop grooves. Together we embody joy as a tool to build community. Appropriate for all ages. No prior dance knowledge necessary.

    CONTRA-TIEMPO: ¡AZÚCAR!

    Activist Dance Theater

    Embark on a transformative journey through “¡Azúcar!” CONTRA-TIEMPO’s newest theatrical dance work leans into Celia Cruz’s music as inspiration and delivers explosive salsa dancing while taking us through a truly Caribbean narrative. ¡AZÚCAR! explores our complex relationship with sugar and is a celebration of ancestral wisdom, also serving as an exploration of Afro-Latiné ancestral movement. Conceived and directed by Ana María Álvarez, this immersive experience features a village of brilliant artists who work together to confront the past, heal collectively, and celebrate the resilience of the human spirit.
