For 2020, Blaktinx enters its 4th 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 three years. 

 

BlakTinx Dance Festival Phoenix is partially funded by a festival grant given by The Arizona Commission on the Arts.
