Tere Luna will perform a Mexican folkloric dance using Mexican music, wearing colorful, traditional attire. Performances can be specific to Mexican celebrations or holidays occurring in the month of booking. Tere explains cultural and historical context of the music and dance style. Select students may be asked to participate, doing simple steps so they can follow choreography.
Two volunteers are welcome to help facilitate participation.
