Our Story

La Mezcla is a polyrhythmic, multidisciplinary San Francisco-based dance and music ensemble rooted in Chicana, Latina and Indigenous traditions and social justice. Founded in 2014 by Dance/USA Artist Fellow Vanessa Sanchez, their work brings together Tap dance, Son Jarocho and Afro-Caribbean rhythms to bring the often unseen histories and experiences of communities of color to stages, streets and fields. Through elaborate rhythmic arrangements and choreography, performances by La Mezcla cross musical genres and dance styles. Their work has been presented at SF Bay Area theaters including Brava! for Women in the Arts, Dance Mission Theater, and EastSide Arts Alliance’s Live Arts in Resistance. They were featured in KQED Arts "If Cities Could Dance," San Francisco 2020 episode, and The Lincoln Center's Virtual Concerts for Kids series. Their show "Pachuquísmo," a tap dance and Son Jarocho production about Pachucas and the Zoot Suit Riots, is set to tour throughout the US in 2021-2022.
