(JACKSON, NJ) -- Join in a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month and enjoy music and dance by the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre at the Ocean County Library Jackson Branch on Saturday, October 8. The Hispanic Tapas Dance Program will be a mixture of classical, regional, and flamenco dances from Spain, and Latin American dances from Mexico and Ecuador. Showtime is 2:00pm.
Considered New Jersey’s premier Spanish and Latin American dance company, the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre was founded in 1965 as the Maria Alba Spanish Dance Company. The group regularly toured major East Coast venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Symphony Space.
In 1980, Maria and current Artistic and Executive Director Eva Lucena introduced dynamic choreographers and dancers to project a broad perspective of Spanish culture. Today, Alborada maintains a vast repertoire of dance forms and dance dramas with origins in Spain and Latin America.
