On Saturday, November 4th, the Conservatory Spanish Dance Department presented Estampas del Quijote, a collection of scenes and fragments of the beloved story of Don Quijote de la Mancha, adapted by Raul Salcedo and Marisol Moreno, and brought to life through dance.

Estampas del Quijote was directed by Marisol Moreno, Spanish dance department head and CEA Spanish department faculty member, and features choreography by Marisol Moreno and Cristina Masdueño. Although conceptualized and brought to life by the CEC Dance Department, Estampas del Quijote is a school-wide celebration of one of the most important cultural pieces of Hispanic Heritage, Cervantes’ Don Quijote de la Mancha. Students in second grade and above were introduced to characters, themes, and scenes from the iconic novel in an age-appropriate way, furthering their understanding of the literature and its cultural significance through various projects.
