The evening will feature a storytelling and luminaria making workshop and performance. In this workshop, you will design your own luminaria that represents your light, love, and home.  Choreographer, Yvonne Montoya is a 23rd generation Nuevomexicana who grew up making and lighting luminarias (or farolitos as they are called in the Northern part of the state) as a family tradition; one she is delighted to share.

The workshop will be followed by a performance of select dances from Stories from Home.
