Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company presents Diciembre Mexicano, a journey through Mexico's rich traditions, folklore, and dance forms focusing on the culturally significant month of December. A month of myriad holidays, ceremonies, and traditions, it can be said that December marks the high-point of the Mexican calendar when it comes to religion and folklore. Religious and cultural life in Mexico being often times so intertwined that they are indistinguishable, Diciembre Mexicano touches upon this beautiful complexity and promises to be an exciting and familiar evening of folklórico at its best. The group continues their commitment to the preservation of authenticity in stylings and interpretations of their work- mixing in the perfect amount of innovative spices.
