The Marjorie Luke Theatre and UCSB Arts & Lectures present this FREE family show as part of the Viva el Arte SB concert series. One of Los Angeles’ most popular folk dance companies, Grandeza Mexicana was founded in 2003 by Jose Vences, an accomplished choreographer and dancer who spent his formative years as a member of Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández. Whether depicting celebrations, ceremonies or daily rituals, Grandeza’s choreographic work is based on careful research and reflects a commitment to preserving the traditions of Mexico’s history into the future. The company regularly appears on Los Angeles, California stages, and last August they paired with iconic Mexican-American vocalist Lila Downs for two nights at the Ford Amphitheater.
