Our Origin Story
Since 2009, the IndoRican Multicultural Dance Project has been dedicated to celebrating the cultural diversity of New York City and its inhabitants. We believe education truly is the key for worldly accord.
We take pride in presenting concerts of various cultural backgrounds with a focus on educating communities. Our company members make dance tangible for our audiences- from classrooms to great concert halls.
As we have grown, we have collaborated with charitable organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House and the Leukemia Lymphoma Society to raise funds for individuals living with cancer.
In 2018, our company was awarded a grant through the City Parks Foundation to perform our signature piece Taino Reign at Inwood Hill Park. We were also awarded a fellowship with the Aseemkala Initiative to create a new piece entitled Taino Calling Song, to be performed within the tri state area.
Our 2019 has been abundant with concerts and lecture demonstrations. We fulfilled our grant from the Fort Tryon Trust with a performance, free class and drum circle for the public.
