Now in its fifth year, the BlakTina Dance Festival continues to spotlight established and emerging black and Latina/o choreographers. This edition includes seven local, mostly contemporary choreographers plus two from Phoenix, to which the festival expanded this year. SoCal participants include Anthony Aceves of Akomi Dance, Sofia Carreras of Intersect Dance Theatre, Mallory Fabian of Fabe and Irishia Hubbard of Hubbard Collective. Phoenix-based Ashley Lorraine Baker, along with the duo Taimy Miranda and Joan Rodriguez, represent BlakTina Phoenix, which debuted with a mix of L.A. and Arizona companies, realizing festival founder-director Licia Perea's vision of expanding the event into a regional representation of the vibrant black and Latin dance scene.
