Raices de Borinquen (RdB) is an all-volunteer, Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance Group that performs in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Our mission is to promote the appreciation and preservation of our Taino Indian, West African and Spanish roots and culture through the performance of Puerto Rican Folkloric dance and music.
Raíces de Borinquen emerged in 2002 from the passion of a group of Puerto Ricans in the Washington, D.C. area to preserve their native cultural roots. The group has performed at schools, Black History Month events, Hispanic Heritage month events, private fundraisers, and a variety of other engagements. We receive requests from people who seek to see and hear a bit of “home” as well as those who have never set foot in Puerto Rico. The group has been honored in the last few years to have been invited to perform at venues such as the Smithsonian Institution's Natural History Museum and Howard University's Rankin Memorial Chapel.
