En Familia Matinee Program:

Club Havana (2000)
Cuban (Afro-Latin) dancing at its best. The intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba, as he imagined his very own “Club Havana.”

Danse Creole (1976)
Geoffrey Holder’s work was inspired by the style and rhythms of Trinidadian dance and the influence of European colonization on the island.

Línea Recta (2016)
From Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, one of today’s most sought-after choreographers comes a powerful and resonant work that explores an intriguing aspect of flamenco dance: the conspicuous absence of physical partnering.

Recuerdo de Campo Amor (1985)
Talley Beatty’s piece celebrates New York’s Latin dance halls and nightclubs from the 1960s and 1970s with a fusion of Latin American rhythms and highly athletic jumps, lifts, and turns.
