a is for azteca dancers

oh joy.  some preschool families were able to come to the thrift shop to watch a performance by the local azteca dancers.  these are all high schoolers (which means many have been my husband’s students…) who learn traditional mexican dances.

the girls sitting near me were talking about which color dress they would choose.  we found out that these dresses are purchased in mexico by the teacher and each dancer got to choose her color an style.
