The Bombazo Education Program

The Bombazo Education Program utilizes a curriculum of Afro Diasporic dance and drum to impact the lives of youth in the South Bronx, giving them tools to think radically about culture, justice, and identity. Bombazo’s staff and teaching artists are people of color, and this program will continue to increase Black and Brown leadership and creatives within the world of performing arts. Ballet to the beat of the drum requires radical imagination and offers young people in the South Bronx an opportunity to understand themselves and disrupt mentalities forged through systems of racism and class that often show up in the South Bronx through violence or divisions that separate us as people.
