Bringing the sounds, rhythms, and dances of Latin America to the stage, the Latin Ballet of Virginia celebrates the essence of Hispanic culture in America. The performance at the First Flight High School auditorium at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 29 promises to be more than a dance recital, for Alma Latina—Latin Soul in English—explores the culture and history of the Americas.

All Students and their parents are invited to this special evening of dance and music at no cost. For more information, please contact the Bryan Cultural Series at bryanculturalseries.org

The Soul of Latin American Culture Comes to the First Flight High School Stage

Tickets to the general public are $15 and may be purchased online through the Bryan Cultural Series website or at our supporting retail stores—Gray’s Department Store, 3860 N. Croatan Hwy., Kitty Hawk; Sea Green Gallery, 2404 S. Virginia Dare Trail, Nags Head; or Downtown Books, 105 Sir Walter Raleigh St., Manteo.

The intriguing and complex Hispanic traditions in the Americas will come alive as the dancers and music take the audience on a journey through time, heritage, and the clash of cultures, exploring the history of the Indigenes peoples and the Spanish influence in the New World.

The colonial history of Latin America will be explored. The legend of El Dorado will take center stage, as will the dances of the enslaved peoples of South America—dances of joy that they hid from their masters. The cultural history of the region will come alive as dancers bring to life the music of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Performances will explore the oppression and political violence of Mexico in the first part of the 20th century, and explore some of the more modern forms of dance that have become part of the culture of the Americas.

And finally, the music of Tito Fuentes will be honored in a finale dance that brings all the performers on stage.

The Latin America Ballet of Virginia has been celebrating the blending of cultures and the strength it brings for 25 years. Sponsored by the Bryan Cultural Series, the performance at First Flight High School will create a memorable evening.

The performance is a partnership between the Dare Arts, the Dare County Schools, and the Don and Catharine Bryan Cultural Series with substantial support provided by the Outer Banks Community Foundation.  Latin Ballet of Virginia will present educational programs for all 4th and 5th-grade students at Dare County’s elementary schools in advance of the performance.
