Pacifico Dance Company - thrilling audiences world-wide with its unique blend of modern and traditional dance since 1992 - makes a welcomed return to our Field Trip Series. Founder and artistic director Adriana Astorga-Gainey and her large troupe of dancers seamlessly weave together elements of modern dance, ballet, and native dances of Mexico – a country with a colorful history, rich traditions and a diverse population. Characteristics unique to each region are reflected in the music, footwork, skirt work, patterning styles, and elaborate and authentic costuming. The Company is passionately committed to encouraging cultural pride within the Mexican-American community; developing an understanding, appreciation, and acceptance of ethnic diversity as an integral part of human interaction.
