Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance, Inc.

  • Folk & Traditional Arts
  • Austin, TX

The Puerto Rican Cultural Center (dba) is the only center in Texas and the
Southwest affiliated with the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture for
ongoing programming that cannot otherwise be experienced in this
region. Founded in 1997 by Dr. Ana María Tekina-eirú Maynard, our
nonprofit 501(c)(3) mission is to promote cultural awareness and
pride through educational programs and cultural events based in
Puerto Rican folklore, history, and living traditions — dance, music,
community theatre, ancestral fighting arts, and indigenous Taino
heritage. While our programs are available to all, we target an underserved
community whose access to arts is limited by economics.
