Dancers eye each other from across the stage – there’s plenty of space for a fierce tango.
On Thursday, October 23rd, MLEC’s auditorium filled with a crowd of colors and an explosion of song and dance. The much anticipated Hispanic Heritage show celebrated the culture of MLEC’s majority – Hispanics.
Exchanging jokes and personal sentiments, Ruth Reyes and Ricardo Romero proved their personalities as the hostess and host of the show.
Angie Suarez, Sharon Molinares, and Daniela, accompanied by guitarist Jared, sing a beautiful rendition of a bilingual Alicia Keys song.
With their performance of “Mariposa” by Mana, Stephanie Ojeda and Pablo Conde had the audience singing along to the chorus.
Extremely talented for their time, Hialeah Middle School’s band performed songs of Latin fusion.
Daniela takes to the stage for a solo performance, bringing along Pablo for an English-Spanish introduction: “Este cancion es para los imigrantes.” “This song is for the immigrants.”
Just like the word “Mapale!” in the traditional Colombian song, Julissa Higgins and Sharon Molinares became a blur as they danced up and down and across the stage.
The fiery flamenco, performed by dancers from a Miami Lakes studio, wowed the crowd.
From dizzying hip shakes to slow, elegant turns, Sharon Molinares and Julissa Higgins show their multi-talentedness with their performance of the Cumbia.
