Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance
Celebrando 2004 - Pirates of Puerto Rico
What an exciting night, after years of research,
to debut our mini-musical about the exciting
adventures of Cofresi, the pirate and legendary hero whose story we brought
to life in "The Pirates of Puerto Rico." This PRFDance original musicial
was written by PRFDance Director Ana Maria Maynard.
popular legend, Pirate Cofresi was the "Robin Hood" of Puerto Rico,
stealing treasure from wealthy ships carrying riches to and from the
Caribbean and sharing it with the poor.
Thanks to a workshop our dancers received from Tina Gramann,
Zachary Scott Theatre
Stage Combat Teacher and Fight Choreographer,
our pirate swordfighting scenes were very exciting!
To add to the excitement, we were honored to have Paracumbe
from Puerto Rico join our musicians in this exciting adventure!
Enjoy these wonderful memories of our first mini-musical.
Adventures of Pirate Cofresi!
We hold the banner high for Puerto Rico everyday!
Thank you in advance for your donation of any size!!
