Founded in 2011 by Yeny Estrada (a.k.a. “Budari”) from a Woman from Honduras and Frank Palacios, a Garifuna Man from Guatemala; The Budari Dance Company is one of three dance companies in the New York City area who specialize in Garifuna Dance and Music Styles.   It should be noted also that Budari was a dancer with the Garifuna Folkloric National Ballet of Honduras led by Armando Crisanto Melendez for a period of time.

Also, Budari is the Garifuna word for the skillet-like, flat baking pan used to make cassava bread.  The BUDARI Dance Company was among the few featured performers at The Inauguration Ceremony of New Bronx Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson in the Bronx last month.

I have not been able to find out where exactly the performance will take place.  An auditorium?  A Classroom?  A conference room?  But the performance is scheduled to begin at 1pm and last until 2:25pm.
