Bembé in Schools

Bembé partners with Milwaukee schools to cultivate in-house cultural performing arts programs that suit the needs and culture of their unique school communities. School-based performing arts programs are year-round, after-school programs that use a Positive Youth Development model to engage youth and their families in ethnomusicology, technique and performance skills, and cultural honorance and empathy, with unique opportunities for intergenerational programing and study abroad. Led by master instructors in the fields of Afro-Latino Diaspora studies, Bembé youth also serve as cultural ambassadors throughout the City of Milwaukee.

Bembé is excited to continue in our third year at Spanish Immersion School for the 2021-22 school year. Students will be led in Afro-Latino drum and/or dance. Their studies will focus primarily on Puerto Rican Bomba and Plena, among other traditions of the Afro-Latino Diaspora. This program is available to all MSIS students in 3rd grade and above and begins in early October.
