Part workshop, part performance, Friday’s AfriCaribe dance event will bring Caribbean and Puerto Rican rhythms to Eaton Chapel in celebration of Black History Month.
AfriCaribe is a nonprofit, folkloric dance group performing Bomba, a traditional style of music that originated in Puerto Rico and was influenced by African slaves. It’s also dedicated to the preservation, research, promotion, and development of the Puerto Rican and Caribbean cultures through music, dance, and other artistic mediums.
Co-organizer Felicia Hernandez’13 says faculty and staff are encouraged and welcomed to attend.
Dance workshop: Friday, 7:15-7:45 p.m. in the basement of Eaton Chapel; casual dress; then, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., watch the AfriCaribe performers dance on the main floor of Eaton Chapel.
