About Vanessa Sanchez

Vanessa Sanchez is a Chicana Native dancer, educator and choreographer who focuses on community arts education and multi-cultural dance forms. Sanchez is a 2019 Dance/USA Artist Fellow and a recipient of the New England Foundation for the Arts 2019 National Dance Production Grant for her work “Pachuquísmo!” Her work often takes percussive art forms out of their traditional context to create dialogue in a new setting, using percussion as the language to tell a story. Sanchez is interested in fusing various dance styles to address the complexities of contemporary culture and tell the untold stories of communities of color. She holds a degree in Dance and Education from San Francisco State University. As a dedicated and experienced arts educator in the latinx community, she works to ensure accessibility to quality arts training and performances. Sanchez is a San Francisco Bay Area native and the founding Artistic Director of the multi-disciplinary performance ensemble, La Mezcla. Her work has been shown on stages throughout the United States, Mexico and Portugal. Vanessa is currently an Artist-in-Residence at Brava! for the Women in the Arts and Ruth Asawa’s School of the Arts in the World Dance department, and works with Loco Bloco’s Performance Ensemble . She collaborates with Dance Mission Theater as a teaching artist for Baile Colectivo, a project that provides free dance and wellness classes for laborers in San Francisco, and as the co-director of the Mission Youth Arts Festival, an annual festival that highlights youth artists from San Francisco’s Mission District.
