Borinquen Dance Theatre will host its 31st anniversary celebration, "Faces of El Caribe: Caribbean Fusion," on Saturday, June 2, at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (657 East Ave.). Nydia Padilla-Rodriguez's Borinquen Dance Theatre was founded in 1981 and is known for combining a unique blend of Puerto Rican folkloric and Latin contemporary style dance.
