The theme for this year’s Festival is PODER Popular and looks at the power of the people and the art that they create when they gather, not in conservatories, but in living rooms and in the streets. The secular dances are fundamental to the daily survival of many cultures, traditions and artists themselves. Dance and music serves as a vital form of expression and as a release from daily problems, worries, and hard ships. The performance will feature a mixed program of local artists. Sunday, April 22 will have showings at 3pm & 7pm. The Sunday matinée will include youth performances with discount pricing. Special events will be at MOAD, including guest lectures at 6pm on April 18 and 26th and a film screening of La Salsa Cubana at 6pm on April 26. See website for more details!
