Global Dance Party

The Global Dance Party series offers an exciting opportunity to experiment with dance styles from around the globe. Each evening will feature a dance class followed by two hours of music from live bands or DJs in our Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall.

Ivelisse Díaz, lead singer of Buya and the most recognizable voice in Chicago's vibrant Afro-Boricua scene brings her high-energy dance instruction style, La Escuelita and batey to Old Town School! This will be and authentic celebration of Bomba, the oldest music style hailing from the island of Puerto Rico.

Ivelisse teaches through her school “La Escuelita Bombera de Corazón” currently located at the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, the place where she learned her first moves over 20 years ago.
