PRFDance recreates Carnaval de Loiza with William Cepeda (2005)


Information on Puerto Rican dance, music, history and culture can sometimes be hard to find here in the States. Our in-depth research began in 1997 and is a continuing effort! Our best research is done on the Island itself, so we are happy to share our resources with you.
