Lori Newell – Engaging the Latino Community Through Dance

Date grant awarded: 10/03/2017

Engaging the Latino Community Through Dance is a new initiative through a joint effort between Lori Newell – director of Dance Forever NY, Kirsten Lonnie – executive director of the Southampton Cultural Center and Minerva Perez – executive director of Organizacion Latino-Americana of the East End.

This program provides low cost dance parties and classes for the Hispanic and Latino community who might not otherwise have access to these types of programs. The goal is to help combat isolation and improve health through affordable, family friendly events where members of this community can dance, socialize and share their culture.
