Combining traditional folklórico dance and costuming with contemporary flair, the Guadalupe Dance Company’s newest work “pays homage to women of San Antonio and Mexico that have added to the richness of women’s history.” Developed during a weeklong residency with guest choreographer Juan Carlos Gaytan Rodriguez, assistant Director of the Ballet Folklórico of the University of Colima, Mexico, Nuestras Raices explores the culture, dance and music of Mexico, and features musical accompaniment by Mariachi Azteca de América and traditional costumes such as the "China Poblana."
