Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance

Celebrando 2006 - Son Boricua
PRFDance with Gibaro de Puerto Rico

For Celebrando 2006, Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance celebrated the rich culture of Puerto Rico with a unique performance -- "Celebrando 2006 - Son Boricua" -- with special guests Gibaro direct from Puerto Rico! Our performing company of dancers and musicians remembered Puerto Rico's past with the rich "Musica de los 40s," a musical style Rafael Hernandez and Bobby Capo made famous! We also took our audience back to the early 20th century for a Sunday afternoon at the Plaza, when the sounds of street vendors' "pregones" filled the air and friends danced and sang and enjoyed eating piraguas (fruit flavored shaved-ice cones)! Enjoy these photos from our peformance! Also relive the backstage fun before 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.
