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.
it was stunning.
and if you weren’t able to be there, i am posting enough pictures that it will seem like you were there.
even more impressive is if you scroll down really quickly. : )
now start humming the “mexican hat dance” song…
the preschoolers remember this dance where the men had wings like birds:
the children were invited to come dance at the end:
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.
thank you, azteca dancers, for inspiring some young ones!
