Latino Heritage will be hosting an evening of music, entertainment, dancing, cocktails and appetizers on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at the Pasadena Senior Center. An Evening at the Danzon will be a recreation of the Latino social scene during the 1940s and 1950s in Pasadena. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in a social reenactment of times past while raising money for our programs, including the 13th annual Latino Heritage parade & jamaica to be held in Pasadena on October 15th.
The Danzon was a popular Latino Studio Club: a supper club with dance lessons, which flourished in Old Pasadena after World War II. The evening will include a dance lesson from Rose City Ballroom, era cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and the musical styling of CAVA. Deborah Sanchez, Honorary Committee Chair for the event, encourages 1946-1954 era attire.Latino Heritage, founded in 1998, focuses on bridging communities and generations while sharing the arts, culture, heritage and history of the Latino community of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. The group's best known project is the Latino Heritage parade & jamaica.
