CONTRA-TIEMPO is a bold, multilingual dance company based in Los Angeles. Founded and directed by Ana Maria Alvarez in 2005, the company's work is rooted in Salsa and Afro-Cuban dance and draws from Hip-Hop, urban and contemporary dance-theater. Called "the new face of Los Angeles dance" by the Los Angeles Times, the company brings to life voices that are not traditionally heard on the concert stage. CONTRA-TIEMPO's rich tapestry of professional performers, many with immigrant or first generation backgrounds, work directly with the company's dance training programs for youth, pre-professional summer intensives, training arts educators and community engagement in art making. Their repertory has been presented in the United States and Latin America. As a part of DanceMotion USA, CONTRA-TIEMPO members toured to South America as Dance Ambassadors in 2014.
