We're getting a new school! Find out more on our NEW Rebuilding Puesta del Sol page!

Dance to Joyful Afro-Latin Rhythms

Fiesta Latina presents Cumbe dance, aiming to take dancers on a joyful journey through Latin American dances and music that originated in Africa. Cumbe means "celebration" and has signified resistance and resilience from African heritage.

In this class, we will explore Afro-Latin rhythms from Mexico, Venezuela and Colombia. We will develop dance blends folkloric and traditional with modern and contemporary,  safeguarding the traditional repertoire, but also creating new choreographies that demonstrate connection to Afro Latin roots. This instructor for this class is Angela Delahoz. One or more parents of students participating in the class will also be present to help with attendance.

This is a PTA-sponsored program and is taught in Spanish.

Who May Participate?

Fiesta Latina is open to all Puesta del Sol students (K-5), up to 16 spots available. If the minimum enrollment of 5 students is not met, the class may be canceled.


Time and Location:  Mondays, 3:35-4:50pm in the Puesta del Sol Gymnasium.  Class ends promptly at 4:50pm. 

Please have your child meet the instructor and chaperone in the gym right after school ends. Please supply your child with an after school nut-free snack (the gym has a drinking fountain).



Girl dancers practice Cumbe with traditional skirts from traditional Costumes.  Performance attire will be available for rental and/or purchase through the instructor.
