LOCATION: Daniels Auditorium in the NC Museum of History - 5 E Edenton St

Mexican culture is one of the strongest and most prominent cultural influences in the United States, and one part of this culture is the traditional folk dancing. Orgullo y Alma Latina was founded in 2008 as part of the efforts to involve new generations in participating in and educating about Mexican culture through folk dance, reflecting some of the rituals, culture, and traditions. Orgullo y Alma Latina is a traditional folk dance group, composed of a dedicated group of Hispanic dancers, giving them a sense of community and cultural pride, as well as allowing them to share their heritage with others. With authentic outfits and an array of dances from Mexico, the dancers show how they have transformed Mexican culture into an art form. The group was originally founded by Mirtha Edwarda and is currently directed by dance instructors Fabian Vargas & Gloria Villar. Orgullo y alma means "pride and soul." At this concert, program notes will be available in English and Spanish. Large print program notes will be available in both languages, and assistive listening devices will be available as well.
