A Quinceañera, also known as Quince, is a Latin American celebration of a girl’s 15th birthday. It honors a young girl moving on from the chapter of childhood to the chapter of womanhood.
You may think this is the same as the traditional Sweet 16, but it’s completely different. At a Quince, there are several dance performances throughout the night with the birthday girl’s escort and 28 closest friends: 14 girls and 14 boys. These are choreographed dances that are prepared well in advance.
Brittany celebrated her Quince on Saturday, June 9th at Komar Hall in Linden, New Jersey. With the purple uplights, a glow dj booth, a step and repeat backdrop, and her very own custom monogram, Brittany and her friends felt as if they were at a dance club. The top NJ DJs from Gemini Productions performed at the event playing a variety of Latin music. Some of the songs played were Don Omar by Danza Kuduro, Si Te Vas/Que Tengo Que Hacer by Omega, Follow the Leader by Wisin, Yandel, and Jennifer Lopez, Pintame by Elvis Crespo, and El Beeper by Oro Solido.
The guests went wild when Brittany and her friends performed the first choreographed dance. Everyone was so impressed by how well they did, and they were looking forward to seeing the other dances they had prepared. You could tell by her smile and dance moves that Brittany was having the time of her life celebrating her Quinceañera.
