The students will be introduced to various styles of Mexican Folk Dance and various sounds. Basic zapateado will be taught in addition to more complicated footwork. Precision and teamwork will be fundamental to the success of the student. Intricate choreographies will prove to be challenging and satisfying to the student and their success. This class is not limited to personal growth and betterment. Students will
