WHO WE ARE

OYU ORO is a New York City-based Afro-Cuban dance company founded by the 2019 Dance/USA Doris Duke Fellow, Danys “La Mora” Pérez, who is originally from Santiago de Cuba. The company is committed to building bridges among African Diaspora and Hispanic cultures as well as between the traditional and unconventional dance forms of modern age while preserving the Afro-Cuban culture through dance, song and music. Oyu Oro’s traditional repertoire pays tribute to African lineages derived from the Yoruba, Congo, Carabali, Arara and Dahomean cultures of West Africa and Haiti. The popular dance choreographies celebrate the national Cuban heritage.
