boogaloo in the bronx!
In keeping with the mission of The Boogaloo Project, Boogaloo in the Bronx! was specifically created to bring multiple activities to Bronx community that will expose them to the historical, cultural and artistic significance of the genre of music known as Latin Boogaloo.
2019 was the inaugural program which brought a day of outdoor live music & dance to the community, bringing together people of all ages & backgrounds, as well as a screening of the documentary film, We Like It Like That: The Story of Latin Boogaloo.
In 2020, while the pandemic forced us to shift course, we were not to be deterred and went forth with a re-screening of the documentary film, as well as a TWO-PART panel series that discussed various facets of Latin Boogaloo. A silver lining despite a difficult time, we were able to bring the message of Boogaloo to even more people!
In 2021, Boogaloo in the Bronx is BACK! Thanks to the support of the City Artist Corps, we are ECSTATIC to bring this event back LIVE to the public!
SEE YOU THERE!
