A Round of Applause for our New Folkloric Dance Club: Alegría de Mi Pueblo
It is all about team work and enthusiasm for our students, and Sam Houston Elementary is doing it again through our new folkloric dance club “Alegría de mi pueblo”. Our principal, Mrs. D. Thomas, gave us the opportunity to lead this club which encourages our students to explore and learn about México’s cultures and traditions through dances that tell a story from different regions.
We have chosen to concentrate in learning from México to maintain our roots of origin and give the opportunity to our children to learn with dances that many of us grew up with. It is awesome how we are making three generations (students, parents and grandparents) share the love for our Mexican roots. What better way, than through folkloric dance. “¿Un bailesito? ¡Héchale compadre!”
