BDAAC LogoBuilding Diverse Audiences Advisory Committee (BDAAC)

In 1996, the Cincinnati Arts Association (CAA) and its Education and Community Relations Department formed the Building Diverse Audiences Advisory Committee (BDAAC) to produce a strategic plan to attract a more diverse audience to its venues.


Mission:

BDAAC is a committed group of citizens illustrating diversity from within the community that acts as an advisor to and ambassador for the Cincinnati Arts Association. BDAAC's purpose is to assist CAA in addressing the programming, service and cultural needs of Greater Cincinnati's diverse communities. In addition, members get the opportunity to collaborate with CAA and other community organizations on projects.

BDAAC often helps plan and participate in CAA events, volunteer at community arts festivals, and play a role in the success of diverse programs through grassroots marketing. As an advisory committee, BDAAC provides input, reminders, resources, and feedback to the Cincinnati Arts Association.

Many of you asked what's next? Where will we be dancing Salsa on Wednesdays?

We are working on a new location and soon as we finalize the agreement, we'll let you know!

The key for us is to find something that will keep the Havana tradition - nice place with a big wooden dance floor! 

Thank you for being patient!!!

It happened to all of us - we dance in a crowded club, and accidentally step on somebody. The polite dancers apologize and move on. However, if the same guy runs into you 5-6 times during one song, something is wrong. Obviously, they need some extra education :)

So we've asked couple of expert teachers to show the cross-body lead the way it should be done in a crowded club. 

Please respect other dancers' space and stay SAFE on the dance floor!!!

We are happy to present our newest "Havana Nights" flyer with our new MidwestLatino Girls: Luma, Elizabeth, and Lisa.
 
We don't need some high-paid models who we don't even know, and who probably never even danced Salsa. The Midwest Salsa scene has enough of gorgous Salseras who know how to dance and model.
 
If you're interested in being featured on our future flyers, please contact us...

We are pleased to announce that Michael Beck, founder and President of MidwestLatino, has been awarded the 2008 Spirit of Cincinnati: Champion Award from the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB).

He will receive this award together with Jason Riveiro, the President of LULAC Cincinnati (they are pictured above with Cincinnati Mayor, Mark Mallory). Michael is Vice President of LULAC Cincinnati.

Michael and Jason have been chosen to receive this award by a committee comprised of hospitality executives from across the region because of their dedication and partnership with the CVB, and for the significant contributions they made in bringing important meetings, such as the 2011 National Convention of LULAC, to Cincinnati.

Each year the Cincinnati USA CVB honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the convention and tourism industry with the Spirit of Cincinnati USA Award . The award have quickly become a recognized and coveted honor in the community - it's the highest honor the CVB gives.

The Award ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 12th, 2009

This is the second Spirit of Cincinnati Award for Michael Beck. In 2006 he received already the Wendell P. Dabney Award for Diversity. Named for the son of a Virginia slave who attended college in Cincinnati and was an author, publisher, musician and political activist early in the 20th century, it is given to an individual or organization for the practice of diversity and inclusion, making Cincinnati a destination of choice for people of all backgrounds

Wow! It's been already two years since MidwestLatino was created in Oct. 2004. Time definitely flies when we're having fun, and these two years passed with a speed of light!


From the start, the three focus areas of MidwestLatino were defined as:

- building bridges between cultures
- making a difference in the community, and
- celebrating diversity

The results exceeded by far our wildest dreams and expectations. We've made hundreds of friends across Midwest, received several awards, and were invited to join several boards of different organizations, but most of all, were able to promote multi-cultural awareness, understanding, respect and harmony among different ethnic and nationality groups in the Midwest.

Our most sincere thanks to our friends, partners, collaborators, and supporters. We couldn't be where we are now without your help, trust, and support.
