“The Chicago Latino Dance Festival provides an opportunity to experience and expose traditions that are critical to the culture and identity of so many communities that exist within Chicago. We also want to elevate and raise the profiles of the artists and traditions of these countries while fostering cross-cultural exchange and providing a cultural outlet for artists outside of their communities. We hope to turn this Festival into an annual event,” added Mateo Mulcahy, Deputy Executive Director of the International Latino Cultural Center.
The Chicago Latino Dance Festival is partially supported by a CityArts Project grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.
