Bolivia Corazón de América was formed in 2000 by Susana Salinas to connect Bolivian American children to their heritage. It continues to showcase Bolivia’s rich and varied culture, and now includes young dancers from other Latin America countries and the U.S. The company educates audiences though innovative high-quality, professional performances, often re-creating Bolivian dances by taking on innovative approaches to ancient and rare forms.
The dance Company performs frequently around the Bay Area, including at charitable events like La Peña Internacional de Las Damas, and COANIQUEM in Pleasanton; also in Sacramento, LA, Chicago, and in China’s Beijing Touring Festival. BCA works with students at Leadership High School, a school that most of today’s dancers attend.
