Why We Exist
In Lak'ech Dance is more than a dance academy. It is an inclusive community where people can feel free to be their true, authentic selves and claim their identity with pride and honor while reaching personal goals through dance. Regardless of how near or far we are to social standards, everyone is accepted and loved as they are.
In Lak’ech Dance Academy is a safe and welcoming space that promotes artistic expression and collective healing within the queer and trans community Together we use dance as a tool for self-care and healing. We create beautiful bonds with one another, as we believe in the power that comes from being part of an inclusive community.
We are committed to increase acceptance and inclusivity in the Afro Latin Dance community at large. We represent queer and trans visibility to improve awareness and open mindedness, which in turn, will have a positive impact on the LGBTQ+ community as a whole.
As an LGBTQ+ organization, we exist to advance the rights of historically marginalized communities. We want to build a foundation that allows for intersectional issues important to our students. We are dedicated to centering and uplifting queer and trans Black voices and bodies. Our commitment to these goals and values will be reflected in our classes, series, events, performances, and rehearsals.
