Farasha & Su'ad Present:

Caliente! Latin-Arabic Fusion


Saturday, March 9, 2019
Connecticut College
Crozier Williams Student Center
270 Mohegan Avenue
New London, CT

To start our 19th year of master seminar events in Connecticut, we are pleased to sponsor Altagracia, the Caribbean Rose. Altagracia literally danced before she was born, because her mother, a professional singer and dancer, performed until she was six months pregnant. At the age of five, Altagracia was performing and has not stopped since.

Altagracia's life's passion has been music and dance. She has taken dance training that ranges from Hispanic folkloric, flamenco, ballet, and modern dance to develop her own unique style of Spanish Arabic fusion.

As a teacher of Spanish Arabic fusion and Middle Eastern dance for thirty years, Altagracia has molded many talented young dancers. She has taught at major New York studios like Serena Studios, Harkness Dance Center, and BellyDance America. An established teacher and performer, Altagracia is not camera shy and has appeared on major networking programs. Her performances at venues like Lincoln Center, NYU Kimmel Center, Donnell Library - World Performance Series, and Harkness Dance Center have delighted audiences.

Altagracia will offer four hours of class in her unique Latin-Arabic fusion style, including a short choreography. Please bring a full skirt!

Our seminar day will also include a dance showcase featuring Altagracia, Farasha, Su'ad, Desert Moon Dancers, and YOU!
