NuYoRican at Piedmont Valley Community College

  • Piedmont Valley Community College 501 College Drive Charlottesville, VA, 22902 United States (map)

The Latin Ballet of Virginia employs the expressive beauty of movement, richly detailed costuming, and multi-media projections to celebrate Hispanic culture in all-encompassing, unique theatrical presentations. The group’s acclaimed production NuYoRican–a moniker created by combining the words “New York” and “Puerto Rican”–weaves together common threads in the true stories of Puerto Rican migrants to New York City and captures the essence of Puerto Rico’s vibrant culture with mambos, salsas, Latin jazz and reggaeton, while honoring the island’s blend of Spanish and African roots with percussion-driven dances like “la plena” and “la bomba.”
