CONTRA-TIEMPO is a non-profit, Los Angeles based, activist dance company, founded and directed by Ana Maria Alvarez. CONTRA-TIEMPO uses the power of movement, dance and performance as a catalyst for change. In the current climate of arts education being stripped from the school curriculum, CONTRA-TIEMPO delivers programming yearly to over 25,000 students that uplifts, unites and empowers them to become more comfortable with their bodies, learn the beauty of cooperation and develops self-esteem. We support children in underserved schools to find their own unique voice and empower them to become agents of change in their lives and the lives of their communities.
