The Latin Ballet of Virginia’s NuYoRican is a visual love letter to Hispanic culture. The contemporary production tells the story of Puerto Rican immigrants arriving in New York City in the 1940s, and the challenges they faced as well as the bonds they created while establishing roots in a new country. Under the artistic direction of Ana Ines King, the ballet combines mambo, salsa, Latin jazz, and reggaeton, while honoring Spanish and African percussion-driven dances.

Saturday, November 10. $12-15, 7:30pm. V. Earl Dickinson Theatre at PVCC, 501 College Dr. 961-5376.
