Thoughts About Art and Community
We enrich the cultural diversity of Toronto by sharing and promoting the culture, traditions, and folklore of Mexico through dance. Our mission is to bring communities working together creating something big through the
arts; we strive to contribute to our society by educating our communities artistically and making our society feel proud of living in a country where all cultures are well welcome. We celebrate the richness of cultural diversity within the society and reaffirm community and culture.
