Review for Contra-Tiempo, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CONTRA-TIEMPO is in their 5th year working with my high school in the Bronx (NYC) as teaching artists and they have not only taught so many students to dance, but have also raised their levels of social awareness and artistic appreciation. I have known the company since it began, worked with them in many capacities over the years, and was so excited at the opportunity to bring them into the high school where I work. As dancers, they are skilled, beautiful, and fierce. When they teach my students, they help them learn the skills of dance and also of professionalism, respect, and dignity. They also expand their minds - three years ago when they first suggested that the boys could also partner with eachother there was a lot of laughing and today, many of the guys in the program love the chance to be partners in class and feel proud of how they can lead and follow with eachother. I intend to partner with, attend performances of, and work with CONTRA-TIEMPO for my entire life in as many ways as I can find.
