Join the Enoch Pratt Free Library in welcoming Jóvenes en Acción to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in the library's beautiful Central Hall! Jóvenes en Acción is a Latin American folkloric dance and service- learning program serving youth ages 12 to 20. This performance troupe brings together Latin American teens to encourage self-expression and promote team building through traditional Mexican and Latin American dance. Led by dancers, choreographers, and educators from Monterrey, Mexico, library patrons will enjoy this performance that highlights the dances, steps, and routines that represent Latin American identity, culture, and heritage.
The teens also perform service-learning projects that foster giving back to the community while planting new roots in Southeast Baltimore. As a dance team, they discuss and plan new community outreach events, which include free performances at churches and community centers, and engage community members in discussions about important topics such as homelessness.
