OLA Dance Party in Sag Harbor
OLA of Eastern Long Island will present Pachanga 2018: Viva La Mujer! — an evening of live music and dancing celebrating OLA’s founders — Friday at 7 at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor.
The dance party will feature Mambo Loco, which for more than a decade has brought music of Afro-Cuban and Puerto Rican origin to the Long Island area, and Carolina Fuentes, a.k.a. Mila Tina, a percussionist whose drumming style combines elements of martial arts with dance moves, lighting effects, and video.
This year’s Pachanga is not only a celebration, but also an occasion to underscore the #YoTambien (#MeToo) movement that has encouraged survivors of sexual assault and harassment to come forward, according to Minerva Perez, OLA’s executive director. Ms. Fuentes, a graduate of Westhampton Beach High School, is a survivor of sexual assault.
Tickets are $20 in advance at eventbrite.com or by calling 631-899-3441, and $25 at the door.
