Raíces Cultural Center offers instruction in Caribbean folkloric dance, drum and song. Participants learn the fundamentals of rhythms, songs and dances from traditional and folkloric genres from the Caribbean, including the Afro-Cuban Orisha tradition and the Puerto Rican forms of bomba and plena. Throughout the classes, participants also learn about the basic cultural history of these artistic forms.
Classes are taught by core members of the Raíces Cultural & Community Arts team, with occasional guest teachers and scheduled field trips to cultural events in our region. Class participants have the opportunity to share what they learned in periodic student showcase and community events. Learn more about our current class offerings and register below.
