LATIN BALLET OF VIRGINIA 

NUYORICAN

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18 | 8PM ​

​​​
NuYoRican pays tribute to New York City’s Puerto Rican community, celebrating their stories of struggle and triumph. It is a collaboration between award-winning choreographer and artistic director of the Latin Ballet, Ana Ines King with award-winning author and journalist, Julia Torres Barden. The work is based on her book, “NEWYORICANGIRL…Surviving my Spanglish Life." This production portrays true stories of the Puerto Rican migration to the United States at it’s peak in the 1940s - spotlighting the discrimination, cultural assimilation and hurdles they faced and overcame.
