Non traditionally traditional dance and dress were a pleasant surprise at the Mexico en el Corazon Concert. Elegance and beauty reigned throughout the two hour performance at the Boettcher concert hall at the Denver Center for Performing Arts complex August 22nd.
Prior to performance awards were presented to some of the organizations that supported and make the concert possible Along with recognition to Museo de las Americas, the Colorado Symphony and Denver Arts Venues for their support.
“Mexico en el Corazon” is an initiative of NAIMA that every year with great success brings from Mexico to the Mexican, Mexican-American community and the American public in general, a show of great quality which presents the most representative of music, dance and songs of our folklore.
The diffusion of these artistic expressions allows a closer approach to our traditions, while reinforcing in the general community the recognition of the great contribution and presence of our art and culture in the United States.
This year, thanks to a new collaboration of NAIMA, the Government of Guadalajara and CONFEDEJAL, and the support of social organizations and local governments, the Guadalajara Folkloric Ballet traveled about 11,500 kilometers in 30 days, visiting 10 states and provinces of the United States and for the first time, Canada.
