La Mezcla

  • Dance
  • San Francisco, CA

Rooted in Latinx, Chicanx, and Indigenous traditions and social justice, La Mezcla works to increase representation, access to the arts, and professional training for BIPOC communities through percussive dance and music, historical performance narratives, mentorship, arts education, and community engagement. Founded in 2015 by Dance/USA fellow Vanessa Sanchez, La Mezcla’s work brings together Tap dance, Son Jarocho and Afro-Caribbean rhythms to bring the often unseen histories and experiences of communities of color to stages, streets and fields.
