Culture Loves Company

In my three years of living in Mexico and immersing myself in Mexican culture, I learned a very important traditional dance from the area. My town had a traditional Concheros youth dance group which they happily allowed me to join, even though I wasn’t Mexican, and no longer a youth. They welcomed me with open arms and a lot of patience as I learned the steps to the different dances. They even let me perform with them! Some of my happiest times in Mexico were when I was dancing with them. I am grateful for the opportunity, and I was very sad to leave. I still practice the dance in my home in NY and rememover all of the wonderful times we had!
