Event description


Live2Dance Events continues to bring MORE BOMBA to the DMV area with Julia Gutierrez-Rivera for an amazing, powerful and energetic 2-hour workshop on Sunday, May 21, 2017!

As a performer, arts administrator and arts educator, her work continues to expand upon the legacy bestowed unto her by countless luminaries of Bomba & Plena and has proven instrumental towards the proliferation of these traditions for generations, young and old, from all over the world.
