Sembrando Herencia 2008 - Journey Back
December 7th, 2008

Sembrando Herencia is our annual full-length performance that passes on our heritage to a new generation! This year, Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance proudly debuted "The Journey Back," our newest bilingual musical, a mystical, action-adventure-comedy about a young woman who travels back to Puerto Rico to recover her lost Taino heritage.

Everyone had a part in this year's lively performance showcasing 30 of our own, beginner children through professional adults performing traditional Puerto Rican live music and dance - Bomba, Plena, Seis and Taino -- with 3 cuatros, 7 bomba drums, panderos de Plena, guitars, Taino mayohuacanes, pots and pans, and an amazing variety of percussion!

Enjoy these photos from our photo shoot, as well as a very special rehearsal where our Performing Company shared their talents with our Youth Performing Arts Students to prepare them for this joyful celebration of traditional dance, live music and song.

Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance is very proud of our mission to teach our cultural traditions to the next generation. This year's expanded two-hour musical gave our youth students a unique opportunity to perform in a complex musical production. It was a joy to watch them rise to the occasion to learn the complex material in traditional dance, choir, percussion, and acting! Please enjoy this harvest from our amazing semester!
