Celebrate Puerto Rico
Date: Saturday, June 8

As we prepare for the opening of our newest traveling exhibit in partnership with PBS kids, “Alma’s Way,” we invite you to join us in celebrating Alma’s Puerto Rican heritage. This month, Ballet314 presents a special dance presentation of “Chocolat,” a Puerto Rican children’s ballet for all ages that tells the “tail” of a human, an abandoned dog, and the adventure that bonds them together. Audience members will step into this narrated, bilingual story and the culture of Puerto Rico alongside our professional dancers, as they Bomba their way through this interactive performance adapted from the book “Chocolat and The Master (of My Heart)” by Doris E. Lugo Ramírez.

Ballet314 is a nonprofit professional ballet company dedicated to celebrating local talent in the St. Louis community. The Puerto Rican Society of St. Louis works to uphold Puerto Rican values and culture while supporting education and charitable services.
