As much as we love performing together, we always enjoy hanging out together!
Master Class by Amalia Viviana Basanta Hernandez
Bailes de Mi Tierra participated in a wonderful dance workshop held in Arlington, Virginia. Workshop was lead by Amalia Viviana Basanta Hernandez, daughter of legendary creator and choreographer Amalia Hernandez of the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernandez. This wonderful workshop brought together members of four local dance companies; Bailes de Mi Tierra (Baltimore), Los Quetzales Mexican Dance Ensemble (Virginia), Maru Montero Dance Company (DC) and Corazon Folklorico (DC).
It was a homecoming for me as I reunited with my former directors: My first dance director was Laura Ortiz of Los Queztales (center), and Maru Montero of Maru Montero Dance Company (left).

Thank you Tony, Cheri and the entire Habaneros Staff for letting us celebrate the night, and then the impromptu birthday dance request was the best!
