HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Omar Pérez is co-hosting and performing with the Say What? Improv Troupe. They perform this Sunday, August 14, 2011 (and subsequent Sunday evenings) at The Sixth Ward in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.

Lia Ochoa will be dancing in FLAMENCO: inside/out on Thursday, August 11, 2011. The concert will include traditional and contemporary jazz-influenced compositions by Cristian Puig (guitarist), Peter Basil (percussion), Javier Sánchez Moreno (bass) and David Castellano (vocals). Along with Ochoa, Oscar Valero will also be dancing flamenco at the event. The concert is part of the Water Lily Concert Series at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
