Dozens of Folklorico students danced their hearts out on Nov. 1, on stage at the Sunrise Mountain High School theater.

The theater was completely dark with the stage only having a few dimmed lights, so the audience could faintly see the outlines of the dancers.

They wore bright colored costumes with white lace, which reflected with the dimmed lights.

Many of them painted half of their face white and black, in the form of a skull; honoring the celebration of El Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

They also wore glow stick bracelets that attracted the audience’s attention to know where the dancers were on stage.

The students danced traditional songs like Vista Alegre and Pelea de Gallo. It was an entertaining concert to attend, to say the least. The dancers, especially, had a good time.

“We didn’t have practice on the stage usage,” senior Diego Aburto said, when asked about some of the challenges involved in the concert. “We just didn’t have like a practice or experience to work with the stage we had. Every stage we perform at is different, so we have to adjust to it.”

Nonetheless, it was a great concert that represented Mexico culture in a beautiful way.
