We are very grateful to everyone on our amazing Danzantes Unidos Planning Committee for sharing their endless energy to bring you this wonderful programming.

A special shout out is due to our WebDogs for their fabulous work in sharing more information regarding workshops and registration on our beautiful new website; and to the ACTA-CLP for the generous grant that literally ‘put the roof’ on our virtual home.  The Alliance for California Traditional Arts promotes and supports ways for cultural traditions to thrive now and into the future by providing advocacy, resources, and connections for folk and traditional artists.  The Community Leadership Project (CLP) is supported by a joint partnership between the David & Lucile Packard, James Irvine, and William & Flora Hewlett foundations.

¡Saludos y gracias!

Executive Director, Danzantes Unidos
