JUNTOS Collective, Inc.
JUNTOS (‘together’ in Spanish) is a collective of performing artists committed to social justice and community outreach through dance. Founded in 2008 by college students, with participants hailing from four universities, the collective grants artists opportunities to teach and perform for the greater community in New York City, San Francisco and abroad. Objectives include artistic and choreographic growth through social justice, community outreach and leadership, international exposure and intercultural exchange.
As an organization dedicated to these objectives, JUNTOS facilitates annual global outreach excursions. Currently, trips are held to Mexico and Guatemala with additional countries in the future. JUNTOS aims to bring together young peoples and leaders of diverse backgrounds by verbally and artistically exchanging cultural differences. Through the collective, dancers build friendships across borders, create new alliances, and provide projects of hope for the communities they visit.
