Description Performance

Vanessa Sanchez is a Chicana Native dancer, educator and choreographer who focuses on community arts education and multi-cultural dance forms.

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 founder/Artistic Director of the multi-disciplinary performance ensemble, La Mezcla.
