In 2001, the Latin Ballet of Virginia’s artistic director, Ana Ines King, created “The Legend of Poinsettia” based on the Mexican legend of a young girl who embraces the spirit of giving. The company King has overseen since its inception in 1997 celebrates the 16th anniversary of the family-friendly production with performances Thursday-Sunday, Jan. 7-10, at the Cultural Arts Center of Glen Allen. The portrayal of seasonal Hispanic traditions features celebratory dances and music that has kept audiences coming back for more. Tickets for the timeless tale that transcends cultural barriers are $10-$20.
