Talking Dance in the Desert with AZ PBS
Dance in the Desert brought Latinx dancemakers together for three-day inaugural convening that was held in Phoenix, April 26-28, 2018. Conceived and organized by Tucson-based choreographer and dancer Yvonne Montoya, Dance in the Desert arrives at a critical point for Latinx dancemakers: a moment of aesthetic innovation grounded in the experiences of Latinx communities.
