When Julia Danced Bomba/
Cuando Julia bailaba bomba


Julia does not want to go to dance class. Her turns are too slow, her steps too big. She just can’t do anything right! When Julia finds out she’ll be participating in a bombazo and performing a solo she is terrified. But Julia takes a deep breath, closes her eyes, and focuses on the beat of the drum. As she dances, Julia notices that the drums are actually talking to her. Julia stops worrying and instead loses herself in the rhythm of the bomba drums!
