2022 Blaktinx festival
The BlakTinx Dance Festival 2022 will feature Latinx and Black choreographers that are based in the greater Los Angeles area. They are rule breakers who are challenging the structures of dance through the fusions of styles, aesthetics, and innovative approaches that represent Latinx and Black dance.
Sponsored by the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Bootleg Theater and Latina Dance Project. This year's festival will be held at the historic Leimert Park Plaza in south central Los Angeles on Saturday April 9th, 2022. All dances submitted are geared towards being presented outside, in the park, during the day. This will be a hybrid performance and will be streamed on the BlakTinx YouTube channel.
