Dias De Las Madres Folklorico Show


On Saturday, May 6th, Lincoln’s Xochitl Cultural Dance Company and all of Lincoln’s Folklórico classes dedicated a beautiful Folklórico show to mothers as an early Mother’s Day celebration. The show wasn’t actually dedicated solely to mothers, but to those who had chosen to take on the role themselves as well, said Folklórico teachers Mr. Magana and Ms. Vela.

There were two shows on Saturday; the first one was from 1-3:30pm and the second one was from 6-8:30pm. Both were held in Lincoln’s Black Box Theater. The shows both had a 15 minute intermission and during this time, food such as pan dulce (a mexican pastry), candy, drinks, and fruit were sold.

Something that was special and different from any other shows was that they kept the audience involved. There was a time when volunteers from the audience were asked to come down to the stage and perform  ¨El Grito¨ (scream) which is a Mexican tradition.

The show was a beautiful and touching performance for everyone that came to watch it. Overall the students did a great job in bringing a little bit of Mexican culture to Lincoln.
