Birthdays, Dance

Echale Porras!

Yesterday was our last day of practice for the next 3 weeks, because it is time for Ms. Ericka to officially become a Porras!

First of all, we want to give a shout out to our July babies. Mr. Bryan, Ms. Cenyazen, Ms. Sofia and, one of our newest members, Mr. Pedro celebrated their cakedays with us and we hope we are there for many more! We also celebrated Mr. Andres’ birthday.

Thank you all for your support that gets us through each and everyday, it is one of our biggest motivators to see how many people want to come out and see our kids in action. A big thank you to all our parents who continue to trust in us to guide their children through their folklorico journey. Yes, maybe not all of them want to be here but keep forcing them, they will come around eventually…and maybe they’ll meet their future-spouse while dancing and then make their own group with a punny name.

We will resume practice on Monday August 12th and have two performances soon after on August 25th and August 31st. The 25th event is already on Facebook.

Please look forward to any updates we might have and we hope you all enjoy your short vacation because when we get back it’ll be go time!

Birthdays, Dance

Vacations, Heartbeat of Mexico and more…

We want to thank all of our kids, their parents, friends, family and supporters for helping us complete a second successful year of Grupo Folklorico Echale Porras! Without you all we wouldn’t be able to continue passing along our love of Folklorico to all of you.

Being able to watch these kids’ growth from Folklorico Newbie to now has been outstanding and we are so proud of them. What started as a one-day-a-week class has turned into an almost full-time (volunteer) effort, with 4 classes per week and constant events we love every moment and look forward to many more years.

This past weekend we performed at the 2019 Heartbeat of Mexico Celebration and were lucky that the rain decided to let up during our set. Along with our Jalisco and Calabaceado sets we debuted some new songs from the region of Sinaloa! Thank you to the Musco Events Center for hosting us and this event, we look forward to next year! Videos are up on YouTube and linked below!

Our classes for the school year have officially ended and you all get a well-deserved vacation! We will start Summer Classes on June 4th, Mon-Thurs 6pm-8pm. See you all there, and have a great rest!

Celebrating our April Babies!

Another month has passed us by and with that a new set of birthdays to celebrate!

This month we celebrate Ms. Laura and Ms. Valentina, both exceptional dancers who have a long dance career in front of them (if they so choose).

Thank you ladies for being a part of Echale Porras and we hope to continue to be your home away from home.

We would also like to wish a happy birthday to all of our April Baby parents and supporters, we couldn’t do this without you all!

Happy Birthday Ms. Valentina

While most people are on their Spring Break some Echale Porras students are still practicing for our April 6th performance. Even more surprising than that Ms. Valentina decided that instead of taking a day off for her birthday she still wanted to practice because she’s awesome like that 😎

Happy birthday Ms. Valentina, thank you for deciding to spend it with us and we hope the rest of your day/night was everything you wanted!

-Andres y Ericka ❤️
