Born in Guerrero, Mexico, and raised in San Antonio, Fabiola Torralba already had two degrees and experience as a community organizer when she went back to school to study dance — a discipline she describes as her “first love.” In keeping with her practice of facilitating “opportunities for movers of all backgrounds to create and engage in issues that affect their everyday lives,” the choreographer/educator/activist’s Nuestra Historia Dance Project combines the intergenerational talents of the Esperanza’s historical/cultural preservation group Corazones del Westside and students enrolled in the Guadalupe’s youth theater program. Nodding with its name to the Alamo City’s rich past, the program’s culminating performance Yanaguana: The Land of the Sacred Waters aims to connect participants and audiences to “the historically significant Mexican-American West Side community of San Antonio.”
