Loco Bloco engages children and youth in the creation and performance of music, dance, and theater rooted in Afro-Latino traditions. While its work is based in traditional artistic practices, Loco Bloco emphasizes art that addresses social-justice themes. It is admired for its focus on creative youth development and for helping to ease the transition into adulthood by honoring creativity, honing skills, and encouraging physical activity. Most of Loco Bloco’s students are low-income Latinos or African Americans. To continue to reach the students whom it would best serve, it is exploring a merger with a larger youth-serving organization.
