LHDU Retreat & Summit 2023
LHDU CONFERENCE 2024/25 (pilot)

LHDU, in association with David Herrera Performance Company, is holding the Latinx Hispanic Dancers United Retreat & Summit (2023) in SF in preparation for the proposed LHDU Natl. Conference in 2024.

The gathering unifies, centers, and brings Latinx and
 dance artists together from across the United
States. The 
planned yearly gathering provides a platform
and space from
which intersectional Latinx/a/o and
Hispanic artists can
“break bread”, find community, and
elevate our collective
voices while discussing topics on arts
and culture that affect
the dance field and our communities. 

It is important for our communities to have a place to come
together and celebrate our strengths and capabilities as
artists; a place to uplift our contributions to the dance field;
a place to examine and challenge ourselves; and a place to
find communal power to bring about national solutions and
social change in the dance sector for the betterment of our
Gente. The Time is Now! El Dia es Hoy!

We'd like to build this gathering as a community. We want to hear from you and learn what you might be looking for in the LHDU Pilot Conference.  Your input is invaluable! 

If you have any questions, comments, or want to learn how to get involved feel free to email us at
