“I locked away my heart But you just set it free Emotions I felt Held me back from what my life should be I pushed you far away And yet you stayed with me I guess this means That you and me were meant to be“
Here are some portraits I made at the annual Fiesta Folklorico program in Portage, IN organized by Ballett Folklorico Tapatio of Northwest Indiana. The visiting dance group were Ballett Folklorico Tapatio & Fiesta Mexicana Dance Co. of Arizona.
The dances and musical pieces represent various regions and folk music genres of Mexico. Many of the ensemble’s works reflect the traditions of indigenous Mesoamerican culture.
