Having seen both A Celtic Connection and A Gypsy Story I can only say that I have been amazed at the breadth of a dance style that is encompassed by Spanish dance that I had always thought limited to the foot stomping flamenco. The Alborada dancers made both experiences a visual delight. Thanks- and see you again in many future performances

We attended the 2007 Spanish Nutcracker performance in New Jersey and we absolutely loved it! It exceeded our expectations, as we viewed the professional talent of the performers. The costumes were beautiful and the choreography was excellent. The dancers were in perfect unison for the routine and each one met the mark. We, also, were very impressed by the diversity of the dances performed. The dance troupe featured multiple age groups showing that Spanish dance is for everyone. We highly recommend the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre.

Their shows are very engaging. The costumes are amazing and the dancers execute nearly flawless moves. I alawys walk away inspired. The love the way they integrate the cultures. The diversity is a great pull. I would have seen them last year had my schedule been open on the dates they were in the area. I look forward to seeing them in the future!

I had the pleasure of seeing one of the group's wonderful cross cultural performances - Sephardic Connection - in Atlantic City in 2008. I was spellbound throughout the entire production. The dancing was superb!

I was wowed by the costumes of this group and that the dancers seem to reach all people. It is really refreshing to see how this group introduces spanish culture to everybody interested in attending a show. I haven't seen anything like this before in my community and I hope its here to stay.

The dancers at the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre are fabulous! They dance with such passion it makes you want to take up flamenco dancing. When you watch the performance you feel like you are transported out of your mundane life into some exciting village in Spain. I am looking forward to coming back and bringing my daughter to expereince this wonderful group. Great show!

I absolutely adore the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre! I have driven to New Jersey from my home in Washington, DC just to see their performance of the Sephardic Connection. Being a former ballet dancer, I appreciate a heartfelt performance involving any form of dance. I was impressed to see a diverse group of people in the company and was blown away by their passion for flamenco dancing. I was also very impressed by with the beautiful costumes - a lot of which I'm sure are handmade. Alborada is an awesome group and I'm looking forward to attending more performances!

Alborada has enriched my life since I started with them about 3 years ago. It has given me a chance again to feel the passion through the dance. Their performances bring together the connections of many similar cultures through dance and theater. They tell a story of passion, joy, and eros. I am very proud being a part of this organization because of it's committment to keeping Spanish dance alive and its committment to educate and spread the passionate world of Spanish Dance Theater.

As a foreign language teacher it is difficult to incorporate beneficial cultural experiences. The Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre has done several incredible performances at our school allowing students to observe, participate and relate to other cultures. The students were impressed with the ability of the dancers and even ask if Alborada would return soon. (We held our performances after school, but they are willing and want to stay again!) Personally, I was so impressed that I inquired about future performances and have had the privilege to attend a number of different presentations. I also began taking beginner flamenco lessons taught by Eva Lucena, director and principle dancer, who's personality is beautiful and knowledge vast and has taught me the art and passion of the dance.

The Great!

I enjoyed the Celtic Connection show very much. The costumes and scenery were lovely. The music was wonderful and the dancing a joy to watch. I loved watching the flamenco dances(love the castanets) and the guest artists were wonderful as well. It was very interesting to see the similarities in the two cultures through dance. It was a lively, entertaining, and informative show. I look forward to seeing another show by Alborada.

Not sure but I think there was trouble with the microphone. Perhaps that was because of the venue and not Alborada.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

probably funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Hope they continue. Great group and very interesting and educational as well.
