Borinquen Dance Theatre is returning to the stage with its annual performance, which will take place during the Rochester Fringe Festival.
The performance will take place Sept. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the School of the Arts: Allen Main Stage Theatre, 45 Prince St., Rochester.
This year’s performance is titled “Diaspora: We are One.” According to a description on the Rochester Fringe Festival’s website, “‘Diaspora: We are One’ removes that veil of identity to highlight the cultural traditions, beliefs, and spirituality of the diasporic people through movement and dance.”
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for seniors and children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased on the Rochester Fringe Festival website.
Borinquen Dance Theatre was founded in 1981 by Nydia Padilla-Rodriguez. The organization teaches the dance style of Puerto Rico, blending Taino-Arawak, Spanish and African influences with modern Latin styles within its programs. Over the years, the program has taught more than 1,000 students.
