Curated by Ella Mesma

Roots of Rumba (established 2013 at Richmix) began as a mission to create a platform for established professionals and emerging Latin dance artists to present Dance Theatre with Afro-Latin dance and themes at the heart.

Roots of Rumba Leeds will showcase Afro-Latin dance theatre from local, national and international professionals and emerging artists, followed by an after-party with the world-renowned DJ Lubi. The event kicks off with free taster workshops, led by Ella Mesma herself, during which you can come and go as you please.
