One actress portrays three generations of lively women in this interactive show written, directed, and performed by Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Paige Hernandez with music by nick tha 1da. Young Yelia dreams of making it big—if only she can conquer her stage fright. With encouragement from her mother, Yelia travels to Cuba to “find roots, get confidence, and be amazing!” As Yelia meets her grandmother and adds a little salsa flavor to her own Hip Hop style, audience members dance along and explore the joy in discovering one’s own culture and confidence.
