The legacy of Cleveland Latin jazz bandleader Roberto Ocasio keeps giving back to the community.

The Roberto Ocasio Foundation has just announced details of the sixth annual Latin Jazz Camp on July 11-16, again taking place at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea.

And once again, Ocasio’s old friend from his days at Berklee College of Music, percussionist Bobby Sanabria, will be artists-in-residence.

As usual, enrollment is open to music students from grades 8-12 of all levels of musical expertise and experience, who take part in master classes, individual instruction, jam sessions, rehearsals, and performances, covering all aspects of Latin jazz.

But there’s something new this year: a class devoted to Latin dance, with noted salsa performer/educator Eileen Torres. It includes actual movement work, music study, and the history and evolution of Latin dance.

Application deadline is June 10.

Tuition, which covers all activities and room and board, is $550. You can find an application form on the website. —Anastasia Pantsios
