Returning for its second year, Taste of Dance will bring our community a multicultural experience in honor of global diversity awareness.  Immerse yourself in the arts and culture of Kern County by tasting cuisine from around the world and experiencing engaging dance performances, live classes, and guest speakers.

Taste of Dance 2024 information coming soon!


This event celebrates not just culture, but also promotes community, education, and an appreciation for the diversity in Kern County. By showcasing different dance forms and pairing them with corresponding cuisines, we hope to enhance understanding and appreciation for the various cultures within our county. Our goal is to cultivate a more inclusive and welcoming community through this diverse celebration. As people learn more about the cultures around them, our community grows stronger and more unified.

"Growing up and moving between countries such as Canada, Egypt, and America, I've come to appreciate not only the unique cultures each background offers but also my personal roots. It's not just a source of pride; I consider culture a personal asset.”
