Portland Ovations invites you to an electrifying evening in Westbrook. Partido takes a deep dive into percussive dance and live music with modern urban styles in African-American and Afro-Brazilian culture. The show was inspired by Leonardo Sandoval’s experiences living in America as an Afro-Brazilian immigrant, and it’s a celebration of cultural connections. You’ll see tap, samba and house dance moves and will find yourself fixated on the fancy footwork.
