What is LXDEA Convivencia 2024?
A gathering of Latinx/e-identifying dance educators. A space to rejuvenate, connect, learn, listen, create, and be in convivencia. LXDEA Convivencia is a time to gather in identidad, share critical conversations, disrupt boundaries, and collectively explore the future needs of our communities.
LXDEA Convivencia Manifesto
Through convivencia, we create a space where people feel they belong. Our community is strengthened by its ability to bridge experiences rooted in the resilience of underrepresented people and their cultural knowledge. We consider that many dance teacher/educator spaces are void of Latinx/e identities. If we are present, we are left to negotiate ourselves within colonial legacies. We aim for bravery where everyone can share their realities, voice their dreams, and shift the paradigm.
