About MetaMovements’ Salsa In The Park: an innovative community project that transforms public space for public benefit through music, dance and education. A public health initiative, featuring movement as a key to wellness, it draws over 500 people from all walks of life every summer on Monday evenings for salsa instruction, high quality performances showcasing a variety of cultures and genres, social dancing and health and wellness promotion.

MetaMovements’ Salsa In The Park programming includes a Youth Arts Ambassador Program hiring and inspiring youth to dedicate themselves to their artistic passion (dance, music, theatre, and media arts), to cultivate their entrepreneurial skills, and to foster a thirst for academic knowledge, all while inspiring them to be of service in the world. As a result, these youth begin to see themselves as life-long leaders and learners who have the tools to continue their development as artists, entrepreneurs, and scholars.

The youth participate actively in planning and executing Salsa In The Park Monday events and engaging, teaching and sharing dance, music, arts and fitness activities with various target audiences, especially underserved populations (such as city children and youth, seniors, people with disabilities and linguistic minorities).
