ENDanza Premieres Pons Guerra's 'Miranda'

The Young Ballet of the National Dance School of the Dominican Republic, ENDanza, premiered Carlos Pons Guerra's Miranda- a new short ballet that explores William Shakespeare's The Tempest, drawing on Pons Guerra's research into Caribbean views on gender- at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, Santo Domingo, on 4-5 February 2016. 

Miranda formed part of La Tempestad, a bill featuring works by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa (Symbiosis), Stephanie Bauger/Dayme del Toro/Marcos Rodriguez's Bolero de RaquelSylvia Pas de Deux, and excerpts from the company's folkloric repertoire. 

It was a very well attended event, with excellent audience and press reactions, who supported the young dancers' talent. Miranda, and the other works in La Tempestad bill will tour the Dominican Republic throughout 2016-17.
