Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance

Sembrando Herencia 2005
Puerto Rico Mi Patria

Sembrando Herencia is our annual full-length performance that passes on our heritage to a new generation! This year Sembrando debuted our newest mini-musical Puerto Rico Mi Patria . Written by PRFDance Director Ana Maria Maynard, our exciting "obra" of traditional music and dance tells the story of the British Invasion of 1797. A British fleet of over 7000 men arrived for what should have been an easy victory with less than 200 trained Spanish soldiers guarding the fort. To their surprise, the British discovered the heroism of the Puerto Rican people as farmers, fisherman, and ordinary citizens came from the mountains, coastal towns, and cities to save the island! This "obra" of traditional music and dance is the product of eight months of serious historical investigation and is based on official and rare historical references. Theatrical enhancements were in collaboration with Rupert Reyes, director of Teatro Vivo. Special guests include "Jaleo Flamenco" Austin's own student flamenco company, and performing arts students from Texas Empowerment Academy. During the other half of our show, our Performing Company shared the stage with our Performing Arts Students in a joyful celebration of traditional dance, music and song.
