Following the official opening of the holiday season on Friday December 13th on Altos de Chavón, the schedule of festive activities continued in Altos de Chavón with a performance by the Compañía Nacional Danza Contemporanea, sponsored by the Dominican Ministry of Culture.
The St. Stanislaus church of Altos de Chavón dripping with lights for Christmas, served as a magical back-drop to the performance by the Compañía Nacional Danza Contemporanea or rather the National Company of Contemporary Dance. The performance of “Strange Beauty” consisted of an enchanting variety of dance genres including classical ballet, modern dance and Dominican folk dances such as Merengue, as well as dances from other cultures such as Gagá and Guloya.
Other magical holiday activities taking place in Altos de Chavón this season include the traditional Dominican Christmas Celebration – on Thursday December 25th, the “Rock on the Rocks” concert with Toque Profundo on Saturday the 27th, the “Pop on the Rocks” concert with Benny and the Cupids on Sunday 28th, the “Retro Jazz” concert on the 30th, all at the Main Plaza in Altos de Chavón. And don’t forget there’s also Christmas Carols and a special Christmas mass tomorrow, Wednesday the 24th from 9pm at the St. Stanislaus Church. Other fun holiday activities to look forward to include the Christmas Boat Parade at the Marina Casa de Campo on Friday December 26th and the Cartier Benefit on Monday December 29th.
