About

Candela Dance Troupe is a student-run group that performs Latin Dance at a variety of Harvard events. In the past, Candela has participated in Presencia Latina, Cultural Rhythms, Apollo Night, and the Expressions dance shows. We are a non-competitive dance group that seeks to promote Latin Dance in the Harvard community.

All dances are choreographed and taught by our members. We hope to foster a true Latin Dance culture on campus through workshops and activities open to all Harvard students that are interested in Latin Dance. We want our members to express themselves by being able to choreograph their own salsa, merengue, bachata or regaetton pieces.
