Southern California has lots of great dance talent and I love learning about dance groups that make a difference in our local communities. CONTRA-TIEMPO is one of these dance groups.

CONTRA-TIEMPO is a Los Angeles-based activist dance company founded in 2005 by choreographer Ana María Alvarez and a dynamic group of performers. The company fuses Salsa, Afro-Cuban, Hip-Hop, and abstract dance-theater to create an invigorating blend of physically intense and politically based performance. The dance company prides itself on its community roots and involvement with the local community itself.  The group strives to incorporate geographic, economic, political, and even national focus into their dance presentations.  Here is a short preview of what you can expect from CONTRA-TIEMPO:

We are lucky here in San Diego as CONTRA-TIEMPO will be presented by the United Association of Labor Education’s 2010 Conference at San Diego City College on March 26th, 2010.

Ritmo Bello and the San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup Group will be in attendance to support CONTRA-TIEMPO and we encourage all of you to experience them in person as well.  You can find out more information on the The San Diego Salsa & Latin Dancing Meetup Group page for the CONTRA-TIEMPO performance (CLICK HERE TO GET TICKETS).  See you all at the CONTRA-TIEMPO San Diego performance!
