The Wallis Presents


JoyUS justUS

Jan 17 - Jan 18 | 07:30 PM


CONTRA-TIEMPO, founded and directed by Ana María Alvarez, takes Afro-Latin dance to new heights infusing elements of Salsa, Afro-Cuban, and urban dance styles. joyUS justUS reclaims the dominant deficit-based narrative of people of color in this country and flips it on its head by embodying stories of joy and justice.
Running Time: 2 hours including a 15-minute intermission and a post-show audience dance party.

WARNING: Burning sage will be used during the performance. 

Dance @ The Wallis is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
