Mission Statement
What Presenters Say

The Latina Dance Project (LDP) is informally adding "Theater" to our name to more accurately describe the work that we are creating and performing. Since our foundation, our company has not limited ourselves soley to dance. We are interdisciplinary to the core, exploring various talents among us, including dancing/moving, singing, writing and creating video/film. This informal name change to the Latina Dance Theater Project fits who we are and what we do!

Artistic Vision
The Latina Dance Theater Project is a collaborative ensemble of multidisciplinary artists who explore through performances--physical, musical, and visual--controversial issues impacting the global community. The Latina Dance Theater "Projects" bring different collaborators together to create performance experiences, forming a new aesthetic in dance-theater reflective of the diverse Latin culture of today.
