Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance
Esperanza del la Herencia 2010

On May 23, 2010, PRFDance brought the rich heritage of Puerto Rico to life with "Esperanza de la Herencia," a performance event dedicated to inspiring Youth. With free admission to all children (under 18), this Recital of our cultural arts students, backed by our PRFDance & Junior Performing Companies displayed the rich variety of Puerto Rico's traditions, including live music and dance performances of high energy Plena, Bomba, Jibaro music with guitars and cuatros, as well as Salsa, Reggeaton, and native Taino music and dance. This afternoon of lively performance was enhanced by educational narrations that taught about our cultural history and traditions.

In partnership with the City of Austin Mexican American Cultural Center, this joyful performance event took up a special collection for a cultural center family in need of financial help. Little Isabella who suffers severe epileptic seizures is in need of a medical-aide dog for safety and assistance with her seizures that unfortunately continue depite having already gone 5 brain surgeries this year.

Children are the hope of the future. We hope this annual production inspires them with a love for our culture that lasts a lifetime, and encourages them to celebrate and transmit this joyful heritage to future generations.



Passing down our heritage is our reward!
