Storytelling Through Dance 2018

July 7 | 12 pm on The Steps @ Main Library

Free Event – General Admission Seating

With a passion for engaging community members through the arts, Barrio Alegria will partner with Reading Public Library for the third consecutive year with their Storytelling through Dance production …But We’re Still Here!. This year the production is adapting Three Little Pigs, concentrating on themes of immigration, abusive relationships, and wage theft. The production’s choreographies will mix Latinx rhythms with non Latinx dances and will include a variety of dance forms such as Huayno, Salsa, Bachata, Tango, Lyrical, and Hip Hop.

Many of our performers are facing their fears and embracing the challenge of something unfamiliar to them, a decision which compels them toward self-growth and discovery. Overall, participants from this production hope to gain confidence in leadership, public speaking, and social skills, with a strong desire to make positive changes within their city.
