Casita Maria has a long history of supporting the arts in the South Bronx. Indeed, with Tito Puente,  Tina Ramirez, the founder of Ballet Hispanico, and Joe Conzo, Jr. as alumni of our programs, it is fair to say that Casita Maria has had a remarkable impact on the performing and visual arts in New York City, and even around the nation.  We care passionately about the arts, and with the Casita Presents and the Casita Gallery programs, and the South Bronx Culture Trail initiative, we are providing our community with access to the highest quality creative work.
