Alayo at the MoAD
On February 8, 2018, Alayo Dance Company presented a series of performances at the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) in San Francisco, as part of their celebration of Black History Month. The performance, which attracted a standing-room-only crowd, highlighted a variety of elements of Cuban dance, beginning with a Rumba performed led by Master musicians Yoel Mulen-Robert and Jesus Diaz and featuring dancers Ramon Ramos, Jamaica Itule-Simmons, with Stella Adelman as Eleggua. The performance then moved upstairs for a mesmerizing Contemporary composition of Alayos' entitled "Corriendo," performed by Adonis Damian Martin, Edisnel Rodriguez Gonzalez, and Delvis Friñon (pictured above.) Rounding out the program was a high energy Salsa/Cabaret piece performed by choreographer Yismari Ramos Tellez along with Chloe Campbell Clark and Katy Yong. Thank you to all who came to support Alayo Dance Company!
