I began dancing folklorico over 40+ years ago, when I was in the 6th grade. Dancing was an amazing escape for me where I didn’t have to worry about anything but what I was doing at that exact moment. My body and mind were challenged constantly, and the pride in finally getting a new step or routine was such a great feeling. It was there that I learned so many life lessons like commitment, tenacity and discipline as well as gained self-confidence.
These are the things I hope to pass along to every student that passes through Floricanto’s doors. This is a safe space to learn, to try, to dream, to risk and not be judged.
