Explosión Cubana: Una Noche Tropical
A new holiday tradition! The weather may be cooling down, but things are heating up inside Dance Mission Theater. In celebration of renewed relations between Cuba and the US and in the the spirit of Havana's famed Tropicana nightclub, CubaCaribe in collaboration with Dance Mission Theater presents a sizzling evening of Cuban cabaret featuring Alayo Dance Company and guests, complete with dinner and a show. With artistic direction and choreography by Ramon Ramos Alayo and live music by Patricio Angulo, this dance extravaganza takes its audience on a journey celebrating the evolution of Cuban dance and music from Folkloric to Popular to Modern (and everything in between). So come out a celebrate a lo Cubano - from Che to Communism to yes, even Christmas!
The intimate Dance Mission Theater will be turned upside down, with the audience sitting on the stage to experience this tropical spectacular. Additional choreography is by Jose "Cheo" Rojas of Cuba's Ban Rara and Yismari Ramos Tellez of Cuba's Lady Salsa.
The exciting evening will be accompanied by a live band and Cuban meal, complete with an appetizer, main course, and dessert (Cuban tapas will be served for first weekend).
