For 2019, Blaktinx enters its 3rd season in Phoenix where we continue the mission of  amplifying the work of Black and Latinx choreographers.

Under the direction of artist, Liliana Gomez, BlakTinx has flourished and has been a sold out success for the past two years. For 2019 we will open the application to residents beyond the Phoenix area to connect with more communities. Along with offering community dance classes that will be open to the public 


BlakTinx Dance Festival Phoenix 2017 and 2018 was partially funded by a festival grant given by The Arizona Commission on the Arts.
