Who We Are
Collectives for Arts Music & Dance is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit cultural organization with a mission to educate the public about Latino’s unique cultural values and artistic expression.
We offer our communities with sustainable cultural programs that aim to instill a sense of pride and identity for Latinos, helping them understand cultural diversity as it provides the pattern that gives meaning and structure to life, thereby helping it “reflect its past, enrich its present, and imagine its future.”
WHAT WE DO
We provide arts-in-education to public and private schools, dance performances and cultural activity services for community organizations and after schools, dance performances, music concerts, and Dominican traditions workshops for CUNY and SUNY colleges, universities. Our programs are multicultural and multi-disciplinary in nature, while it touches upon authentic Euro and Afro-descendant cultural customs.
Who we serve
Our constituency is a multilingual and interdisciplinary community that includes a diverse audience from urban to rural communities. As we have created a network of local artists we partner with, we can bring a wide variety of cultural programming that recognizes and celebrates the diversity of communities in New York and abroad.
Collectives for Arts Music & Dance is committed to carrying its founder’s vision of inclusion in our members’ development and education while providing a safe environment where young people can reach their artistic potential. We hope to increase our programming offering and increase our members’ diversity to reflect the demographics it serves more closely.
