She always dreamed of studying in the land of her Abuelos. Little did she know that was when her dreams would begin! La Promesa Rebelde (The Rebellious Promise) pays tribute to our ancestors who rebelled against slavery in Puerto Rico, including Taino warriors, African slaves, and their descendants.

Join Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance for our 15th original musical that brings history to life through community theater, featuring live music and dance.
