I'm very pleased to share this collection of portraits of Abakuá Afro-Latin Dance Company and students. With Frankie Martinez's guidance, and EnE Salon's expertise and secret stash of hairpins, we jumped back to the 1960's to recreate dance scenes for the documentary "We Like It Like That: The Story of Latin Boogaloo". It was a fantastic afternoon making director Mathew Ramirez Warren's vision come to life, sharing friendship, and dancing with the music we all love. Que viva el Boogaloo!
