Join us for a carnival-inspired performance by Ramón Ramos Alayo and the Alayo Dance Company. Alayo will choreograph a site-specific work in conjunction with the current exhibition En Mas: Carnival and Performance Art in the Caribbean. Alayo Dance Company presents a variety of Cuban dance forms such as Yoruba, Rumba, Salsa and Afro-Cuban Modern dance.

In 2002, Ramón Ramos Alayo founded the Alayo Dance Company. As director and choreographer, his work is an innovative fusion of Afro-Cuban modern, folkloric and popular Cuban dance. He eloquently articulates his aesthetic vision through a synthesis of these dance styles, citing from each traditions, movements, narratives and concepts indicative of Cuban culture. 2003 Ramos co-founded and became artistic director of CubaCaribe, a non-profit with the mission to preserve and promote the rich cultural and artistic traditions of the Carribbean and its diaspora. Alayo Dance Company is the resident company of CubaCaribe.
