Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance
Celebrando 2003 - Joint Performance with Guateque

What an honor to bring long time mentor, teacher, friend Joaquin Nieves, director of Guateque de Puerto Rico to Austin to meet our performing company "Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance!" Joaquin and members of Guateque came in January 2003 and gave us a master-level workshop of traditional dance and music from the mountains of Puerto Rico. Here are photos of our joint performance which culminated this project, as well as the backstage fun getting ready for the show All was made possible by funding by the National Endowment, the City of Austin, Texas Commission on the Arts, and the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, and others.
