The San Gabriel Mexican Folk and Aztec Dance Company will once again share the stage with the popular Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company in presenting Nosotros Somos Mexico ("We are Mexico").
"Nosotros Somos Mexico" brings the beautiful tradition of Mexican folk dance and live music to the stage presenting an exciting and varied repertoire from both dance companies.
The San Gabriel Mexican Folk and Aztec Dance Company is celebrating it's 9th anniversary in concert with Mariachi Voz de America who will accompany both dance companies.
As part of this gala concert, Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet will be performing some of their most popular choreographic works such as Nuevo Leon and Guerrero while also presenting modern adaptations of the late Mexican choreographer Amalia Hernandez, in Noche de los Maya. Specializing in theatrical Mexican folk dance, Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company is thrilled to return to the San Gabriel stage after the well received presentation: "Mexico Vivo, a tribute to Amalia Hernandez" this past June with special guest artist Viviana Basanta Hernandez, daughter of the late Amalia Hernandez.

While both of our dance companies are different in approach to Mexican folk dance, we both share a deep respect and passion for our rich heritage."
