Julia del Palacio Son Jarocho Dance: "Golpe de Mar" @ Flushing Town Hall | New York | United States

Rooted in zapateado jarocho, the traditional dance from Veracruz, Mexico, Julia del Palacio premieres “Golpe de Mar” (Struck by the Sea). A reflection on son jarocho dancers’ intentional movement, agency, and individual style, “Golpe de Mar” unpacks this 300-year-old style and proposes new ways of approaching it, enhancing the role of the dancer within the musical ensemble and celebrating dancers’ contributions to the preservation and growth of the genre.

This concert is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
