Latin Sparks Presents

The Original Rhythm

Celebrating the Roots of Afro Rhythms in Latin Dance!

THE ORIGINAL RHYTHM

 Heartbeat, Harmony, History!

Latin Sparks wants to pay homage to the magic of Afro roots in Latin dance! The Original Rhythm is a series of interactive online dance classes and artist-led discussions on the Afro-origins of different Latin dance genres. 

Join us on Instagram LIVE @latinsparksfestival NOV 21, NOV 28 & DEC 5 from 12PM – 2PM. Each artist will showcase a specific dance genre, teach an intro-level dance class, and lead a discussion educating viewers on the genre’s origins in African culture. 

As one of the largest Latin festivals in Canada, we have benefited greatly from the contributions of Afro culture and rhythms. We believe it is our duty to pay homage to the often unknown and forgotten originators, Afro Latinos, whose contributions have allowed us all to celebrate the incredible music and dance across Latin America.
