DANCE | "Evolution" 

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Borinquen Dance Theatre, which provides holistic dance programs for youth, many from economically challenged families. Artistic Director Nydia Padilla-Rodriguez, an original member of Garth Fagan's Bottom of the Bucket dance company, founded BDT in 1981 and began teaching dance classes at Hochstein School of Music and Dance in 1984. Since then, BDT has garnered many local and national awards and made dance training accessible to hundreds of students. The company will celebrate its anniversary on Saturday with "Evolution," which portrays the journey of BDT over the last 35 years.

The show will be performed Saturday, April 16, at Hochstein School of Music and Dance, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. Tickets are $10 for students and seniors, and $20 for adults. To purchase tickets, visit or call 263-2623.
