Just in advance of Cinco de Mayo, México Diverso will introduce students to the beautiful diversity of Mexican cultures. From the well-known dances and mariachi of Jalisco to the Afro-Mexican traditions of Veracruz and the Zapotec indigenous language of Oaxaca. The Northwest’s most celebrated Ballet Folklorico company, Bailadores de Bronce, will dazzle with colorful dances from multiple regions while Trío Guadalevín introduces traditional instruments and songs. This memorable production will delight audiences while supporting learning in core areas such as social studies.
