Abstract Paper Cutouts


Founded in 2021, the Latinx Dance Educators Alliance (LXDEA) is a movement, a mobilization of comunidad, that counters dominant, exclusionary practices prevalent in dance pedagogy, curriculum, scholarship, and spaces across the field.  

In direct response to the historical and continued erasure of Latinx/e contributions and experiences, LXDEA connects dance educators through the Alliance, provides a curated database of Latinx/e centered resources through the Oasis, and promotes Chicana/Latina feminist practices of plática, testimonio, and convivencia to shape learning experiences for dance educators in community.

LXDEA is comprised of 80 Alliance members working independently and across various institutions, including community grassroots and independent organizations, dance studios and conservatories, K-12 public and private schools, and post-secondary institutions. Located in diverse geographic regions of the United States, including Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Wisconsin, Puerto Rico, and throughout Bolivia, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, and México, Alliance members hold various expertise in dance education research and practice.
