About the Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre
Alborada Spanish Dance Theatre was originally founded in 1965 by dancer Maria Alba. In 1980, the company was revitalized under the direction of Ms. Alba and its current director, Eva Lucena, who brought the company a group of extraordinary new dancers and choreographers. Ms. Lucena & Ms. Alba believed strongly in bringing a broad perspective of Spanish culture and traditions to the community. To this end, they worked to set the company apart from other Spanish dance companies by bringing to the stage dance dramas such as El Amor Brujo and dramatizations of the poetry of Frederico Garcia Lorca, as well as regional and traditional dances from all parts of Spain. Alaborada has been incorporated as a non-profit organization in NJ and has performed in many venues in the tri-state including the New York Symphony Space, Crossroads and George Street Playhouses in New Brunswick, NJ, as well as venues in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, Miami & San Francisco.
