Congratulations to Groupo Folklorico Ichtecqui for winning 5 1st place trophies and one 2nd place. Our PSJA North Folkorico Dance Group traveled to San Antonio over the weekend and competed at the San Antonio National Folklorico/Contemporary Competition 2017 at the Scottish Rite Theater. There were approximately 40 groups mainly from Texas, Oklahoma and Chicago. There were different divisions and categories.
Our Group earned the following: 1st place in JV Duet dancing El Huasteco, JV Ensemble on Nuevo Leon Huapangos, JV Small Group on Nuevo Leon Polkas and JV Cuadro on Zacatecas and they earned a 2nd place dancing to Tamaulipas Centro in the Intermediate small group. The group also earned first division in Intermediate cuadro as they danced to Linares Nuevo Leon.
The Folklorico is taught by our folklorico dance instructor Martin J. Hinojosa. The students are very committed to their dancing and bringing joy to their audiences. They also do community performances such as the Edinburg Nursing Home pictured below.
