For the past thirty-five years, Borinquen has been working with young Rochesterians, helping them develop the discipline needed to be successful.

Take a look at how powerful a program it really is. Aired 4/1/16. 

Sensory-Friendly Ballet

Air Date: 
Mar 25, 2016

When you think of a ballet performance, I bet you imagine a quiet audience, stuffy even, quick to shush a cough and would certainly balk at talking. Well, the Rochester City Ballet is one of just a handful of ballet companies in the United States that's broken through that barrier and has turned the music down, and the lights up, in the name of inclusion. Take a look at their recent sensory-friendly performance of the Ugly Duckling at Nazareth College. Aired 3/25/16. 

PUSH Physical Theatre

Air Date: 
Feb 05, 2016

We've seen how theatre can take many shapes and forms, but we haven't seen anything quite like this before... PUSH Physical Theatre, based right here in Rochester, has taken storytelling to new levels. They're able to tell rich, powerful stories, through physical expression and movement. Let's take a moment to see them in action. Aired 2/5/16

Sankofa African Drum & Dance

Air Date: 
Aug 28, 2015

SUNY Brockport plays host to a variety of excellent programs, but one of its most unique is in its dance department. For more than two decades, Clyde Alafiju Morgan has led SUNY Brockport students in learning about, not only African dance, but also it's culture.
