Borinquen Dance Theatre will be at Rochester Fringe Festival

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.
