I personally LUV all things cultural; music, drama, dance and visual arts. I admire talented people and enjoy being around them. Not unlike any other place, the Dominican Republic is full of creative expressions.
They have a great National Theatre, an awesome artists colony (Altos de Chavon) and of course the familiar music/dance called merengue.
You should check out a movie at a local theatre or see a live concert. Maybe you'd like to see a dance recital. Art appreciation from a different perspective.
