This performance is part of the Krannert Center Youth Series, school-day performances for public, private, and home schools, grades PreK-12.
If you were invited to dance for the President, you’d want it be the best dance ever, right? That’s just what young Yelia thinks too! Come along as she visits her grandmother in Cuba, infusing her hip-hop style from back home with a little salsa flavor! The audience gets to dance along in this dynamic participation play where just one actress—master teaching artist, dancer, actress, playwright, and director Paige Hernandez—creates three generations of lively women. Journey with Yelia as she discovers the fun of her multi-cultural heritage.
Connects to Illinois Learning Standards in Fine Arts, Social/Emotional Learning, English Language Arts, and Social Sciences.
Recommended for grades PreK-2
Performance length: 40 minutes
