Professional Dancer Shares How Salsa Brings Communities Together

Our guest this morning is Marcela Lay, a professional dancer who has been teaching various dance styles and helping form a dance community in Colorado. Producer of Havana Nights at the Dairy Center for the Arts and the local “A Lo Cubano” Festival, with the support of many other members of the dance community, Marcela confesses to KGNU’s Rossana Longo-Better that, although she grew up dancing in her home country of Chile, it wasn’t until she came to Boulder that she really learned how to dance and teach Salsa from a great mentor. In today’s episode, Marcela talks to us about how dance can bring communities together.

Storytellers of Color airs on the second Monday of each month as part of A Public Affair on KGNU. The primary goal of the show is to provide a safe space for communicators of color, through a series of conversations, to elevate their voices and discuss issues of equality in the media. Gatherings of various working groups inspire the show, including Latinx News Voices Colorado Project, and Journos of Color Network led by Tina Griego, reporter, editor, and coach from Colorado News Collaborative.

The Storytellers of Color series are a collaborative effort, with an open invitation to other storytellers to come into our airwaves, tell their stories, and occupy the safe space we provide every second Monday of the month.
