This joyful performance of Puerto Rican folklore from Spanish, native Taino, and West African roots will feature lively dances of Plena, the sung newspaper of Puerto Rico, and beautiful 19th century dances, "Bailes de Salon" of the elite agricultural landowners. The Professional Company will perform traditional music and Bomba to live drums.
This recital not only shares with family and friends dances, songs, and culture learned this semester, but also valuable lessons students can take through life -- learning to keep going despite mistakes, learning to keep a big smile even when afraid. It's been a special time watching the children learn folklore for the first time, as well the parents who stay for class in a show of love and family support.
