Mission:

Founded and directed by Ms Susana Arenas Pedroso, Arenas Dance Company’s mission is to preserve and promote the rich and diverse Cuban folkloric and popular (i.e. social) dance traditions – from the percussive Arará to the sensual Rumba to the energetic Palo – making it accessible to wide audiences via performances and classes. Born from a commitment to educate and enrich the communities in which Ms. Pedroso lives, Arenas Dance Company inspires the hearts and minds of its audiences in the way it brings the history of Cuban dance and musical culture to life.
