On television, in clubs and on the stage, Latin dance has been rediscovered by a new generation who are captivated by its rhythms and artistry.
Members of the PBA Dance Ensemble recently got a lesson in the history of this art form taught by one its foremost interpreters.
Barbara Craddock, known for her talent and passion for the mambo genre, is a visionary of timeless, clave-based, Latin dance and music. With a stellar professional dancing and teaching career, she has produced and directed original Latin revues in New York, New Jersey and Florida. Craddock and her late dance partner, Pedro “Cuban Pete” Aguilar, performed, taught and lectured worldwide.
