Kent Barker

Grab a partner, your festive Latin attire, and join NBC 5 and Dallas Black Dance Theatre for an unforgettable night at The Big Dance on Saturday, June 3, at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.

This year’s event features live music from traditional and contemporary local Dallas artists including the premier Cuban style orchestra Havana NRG!, the full experience salsa band Fusion Latina, and Mariachi Zacatecas. NBC 5’s Maria Guerrero is this year’s emcee and Amanda Cristina Salsa will lead the dance floor with lessons in salsa, bachata, merengue, and reggaeton styles. This fun night will include food and spirits, festive décor, and professional dance vignettes from Dallas Black Dance Theatre dancers to create the flair of Latin and Afro-Latin culture!

All proceeds will benefit Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Academy by providing a 40% subsidy for training fees for 500+ students.
