Mexican Folk Dance
by Maria Luisa Colmenarez

The offering for 2003 will focus on the folk dances of Mexico's northern state of Chihuahua. The class is appropriate for ages 10+, novice as well as experienced dancers seeking to expand their repertoire and educators researching dance material for their classroom.

Class will include a brief warm-up and introduction to basic footwork before leaping right into variations of the chotis, redova and time permitting, a polka. Bring your best two feet, drinking water and a notebook for an hour of folklorico fun.

Maria Luisa Colmenarez is the president of the statewide folklorico
non-profit, Festival Danzantes Unidos, artistic director for Alegria de San Jose and a member of Jubilee American Dance Theatre.
