The 8th Annual CubaCaribe Dance Festival.

This year will present performances, workshops, lectures and a film screening by master and emerging Caribbean and Latino musicians and choreographers, each offering a unique look at the power of people and their use of music and dance to overcome daily trials. The theme for this year's Festival is PODER Popular and looks at the power of the people and the art that they create when they gather, not in conservatories, but in living rooms and in the streets. The secular dances are fundamental to the daily survival of many cultures, traditions and artists themselves. Dance and music serves as a vital form of expression and as a release from daily problems, worries and hard ships.
