I talked to Elaina Hernandez of El Corazon de Mexico at Festival Latino 2019.
Tell me about your group.
We do Mexican folkloric dancing. We are from Toledo Ohio. Mexico is just like the United States. It is made up of 31 states and one federal district. Each state has its own style of music, costume, and dancing. We did dances from 4 different states today, Michoacán, Sinaloa, Colima, and Jalisco.
We are a not for profit youth group. All of our classes are free to anyone who wants to learn how to dance. Our classes are held in Toledo, Ohio. We dance all around Ohio. We recently went to Walt Disney World. We have danced in Chicago, California, and West Virginia. We dance different places showing people the beauty and charm of Mexico.
