Cross the border with Grandeza Mexicana, L.A.’s premier folklorico dance company, as they illuminate the culture of Mexico’s northern regions. With a terrain and character similar to America’s Southwest, Northern Mexico is known for wide open plains, cowboys, big attitudes and brave characters. The evening features new works — folk dances of Tamaulipas and a Country Western-themed piece (a first for Grandeza) — as well as the Mexican traditional music group Hermanos Herrera.
Ruta del Norte is part of our Live @ the Ford series. The performance and special behind-the-scenes footage airs on KCET June 13.
