Afro-Puerto Rican Bomba (Dance) Workshop

Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 9:00 am - 10:30 am

$15 – $20

One of today’s most noted dancers, Julia Gutierrez-Rivera, teaches the basics of bomba accompanied by live drummers.  This monthly program is known to sell out so register early.

Tap into one of the oldest dance and music practices of the Caribbean – Afro-Puerto Rican bomba with Cultura Plenera Bomba means “the act of cooling down by heating up” and is a 500-year old tradition for self-expression and emotional and spiritual release.

After some stretching,  get ready for high and low impact movement, dance sequences and more. This  90-minute workshop is for adults (age 18+).

*Please wear comfortable, loose clothing (i.e. dance wear or dance skirts) and comfortable shoes (no boots).  If you don’t wear a traditional skirt, we will have ones for you to borrow.
