Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance
& Cultural Center

13th Birthday Celebration & Performance


On Sunday, September 12, 2010, approximately 100 from as far as Houston, Dallas, Killen, San Antonio and even Puerto Rico attended Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance's 13th Birthday celebration with live music and dance performances of Bomba, Plena, Salsa, and Jibaro music by our Performing Company and cultural arts students. Free and open to the public, our event opened with FOLKLORE Y RITMOS DE PANAMA and beautiful traditional dances that demonstrated why Panamanians are such warm and friendly people. Our proud sponsor, Fiesta Mart, sent Pepe the Parrot to delight the children as well as a buffet of appetizers, refreshments, and a beautiful Puerto Rican Flag birthday cake for the community to enjoy.

During the 2nd half we thanked Semign (God) for the many blessings we have received over the last 13 years with an authentic Taino Areyto (ceremonial dances) that end with an Areyto Guaytiao (friendship dance) that the audience participated in, traditions that have been taught to us by El Concilio Taino Guatu Ma Cu A Boriken. Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance is very proud to share the joy of our rich traditions with the community, and hand down our heritage to the next generation! Enjoy the memories!
