A favorite with Martha’s Vineyard audiences during The Yard’s summer seasons, Malpaso Dance Company makes its first winter visit to the Island in March, developing new work during a Yard Offshore Creation Residency.

Established in 2012, Malpaso has already become one of the most sought-after Cuban dance companies with a growing international profile. The troupe performs at the Martha’s Vineyard Performing Arts Center March 4 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit dancetheyard.org.
