Choreographic Mentorship & Networking Program

Mentorship and networking program led by choreographer & director David Herrera of David Herrera Performance Company. The 12-month program is designed with the purpose of advising emerging Latinx dance artists (mentees) on ways to develop their professional artistic voices, production, choreography, content, and long-term career goals.


The program's second  focus will be to create a network with other regional and national Latinx artists;  thus developing a rich and thriving Latinx community of dance artists, presenters, curators, and collaborator.    Furthermore, other established professional  dance artists will serve as guest speakers throughout the year, expanding the knowledge base and network of participants.
