Spotlight: Las Hermanas Iglesias, Queens International 4

Everyone Likes to Dance, 2009

Hanging under these disco balls is a floor diagram and audio lesson that instructs you on a new dance that marries traditional Merengue and Norwegian polka. Las Hermanas Iglesias is the collaboration of two sisters, Janelle and Lisa Iglesias. Born and raised in Hollis, Queens to a Dominican father and Norwegian mother, their collaborative work explores a range of bi-cultural experiences often bridging dissimilar materials and practices. 
See and experience Everyone Likes to Dance until April 26th at the Queens Museum.
