As part of our community mission, Inspiración always supports the annunal Latin American Student Organization's Latino Ball at Loyola University. The Ball is a great event that brings together students from across the Loyola community to enjoy Latin food, music and dance. This year we had a brand new roster of college performers lead by IDC Performance Team member, Luis Santillian, a debut piece by Performance Team member Chris Manning and Elisa Alyabyeva from Chicago Dance, a lesson by team members Kevin Little and Olena Jay, and an ensemble piece from the Performance Team. At a time when young students are grappling with insitutional racism on campuses across the country, the LASO Latino Ball is a shining example of how to use culture to bring people together. Inspiración Dance Chicago is proud to be a part of it.
