Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance
Sembrando Herencia 2005
Sembrando Herencia is our annual full-length performance that passes on our
heritage to a new generation! This year Sembrando debuted our newest mini-musical Puerto Rico Mi Patria . Written by PRFDance Director Ana Maria Maynard, our exciting "obra" of traditional music and dance tells the story of
the British Invasion of 1797. A British fleet of over 7000 men arrived for
what should have been an easy victory with less than 200 trained Spanish
soldiers guarding the fort. To their surprise, the British discovered the
heroism of the Puerto Rican people as farmers, fisherman, and ordinary
citizens came from the mountains, coastal towns, and cities to save the island!
This "obra" of traditional music and dance is the product of eight months of
serious historical investigation and is based on official and rare
Theatrical enhancements were in collaboration with Rupert Reyes, director of
Teatro Vivo. Special guests include "Jaleo Flamenco" Austin's own student
flamenco company, and performing arts students from Texas Empowerment Academy.
During the other half
of our show, our Performing Company shared the stage with our
Performing Arts Students in a joyful celebration of traditional dance, music
