Celebrate Hispanic Heritage with Quinebaug Valley Community College

Bomba Workshop and Performance with the Sonia Plumb Dance Studio and Movimiento Cultural

Quinebaug Valley Community College will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a Bomba workshop and performance by Movimiento Cultural and the Sonia Plumb Dance Company.

Movimiento Cultural is a community-based nonprofit that seeks to "educate people across Connecticut about Puerto Rico's rich African-based folklore, music, dance, and other art forms, especially the Bomba, which is the oldest Puerto Rican dance and music style rooted in resistance and dating back to the days of slavery" while strengthening racial understanding and relationships.

The Sonia Plumb Dance Studio's mission states that their mission is to "awaken, enrich, and educate communities to diverse perspectives of our world" through the lens of modern dance.

The event is organized and sponsored by the QVCC Cultural Programming Committee
