Who we are

The Ensálsate Foundation was born with the purpose of creating a professional realm from the dance field. The idea came together to help young, and low-income artists who found in this profession a tool to support their own artistic integrity and cultural roots, build a way of life. The main purpose of the Foundation is also based on the belief that the arts, social initiatives and business disciplines can work together to form, and contribute to a better world for so many.

Objectives

  • To positively impact the most vulnerable population from low income areas. To  find in the art of dancing, a professional movement that could keep them away from many of the negative circumstances of their lives.
  • To provide social safety nets for the entire artistic staff, and for everyone else who is involved with the show.
  • To generate a source of income for artists who by deciding to make dance their sole profession, this will contribute to their way of life and their families.
  • Employ local fashion and costume designers, and scenography personnel who are mostly heads of their families.

Mission

Our mission is to offer the highest quality “Salsa” artistry, while strengthening our heritage and cultural roots, and provide a place where show attendees can participate, and enjoy a most unforgettable experience.

Values and Commitment

  • Social commitment:  responsible for working to improve the quality of life of the community.
  • A commitment to a greater power, team work, to common good, civil responsibility, and acceptance.
