Hispanic Heritage Programs

Through the years, DanceInTime has produced many Hispanic Heritage Shows for offices, organizations, and venues, etc.

Generally these shows include dance performances with brief comments about their history and cultural relevance.  They also may include dance instruction.

Sometimes we also explain the difference between Salsa, Merengue, and Cha cha music so the audience learns to distinguish the musical forms. Then we play some music and dance to it, asking the audience if they can guess which dance was being performed!

Barbara Bernstein has been hired as well to be keynote speaker, addressing the role of the arts in Latin culture, and the progress of Latinos in our country.

We design each show individually and are very flexible.  Educational hand-outs on the history and rhythms of Latin dancing are provided as well.

(Note that DIT is registered in the government's SAMS listing.  Our "Cage code" and "Dunns number" can be provided upon request to government offices.)
