Poe Park Visitor Center and Hispanic Culture Arts Present: Danzas de ida y vuelta

Journey through a global story of Hispanic music and dance in this concert honoring The Bronx, its people, and history! Enjoy a showcase of dances and songs with a live band as you: discover how castanets, a classical and folkloric instrument, brings to life the fandango; learn about footwork dances and their African roots; listen to a delightful vocal performance of Manuel Ponce's famous song, "Estrellita", and more! 

This concert was scheduled to be performed to a live audience outdoors at the Poe Park Visitor Center in the Bronx in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month; however, this year's concert was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and recorded for you to enjoy throughout the year from Parks@Home. 

This program was made possible by a grant from The Bronx Council for the Arts, the office of the Bronx Borough NYC Parks and Recreation, the Balam Dance Theater, and NYC Parks.
