"It will be such a beautiful sight to see our oldest dancer, 94-year-old Grace Regalado dancing next to our youngest dancer, 8-year-old, Mariana," said Virginia Diediker, co-founder of Ballet Folklorico Ollin. "In our show, 4 Generations: Son Mexicano In California, that generational scene of beauty will be repeated over and over again with the young and older musicians, and the same thing will happen with our actors and dancers on stage throughout the show," she said, "We celebrate handing down our knowledge and love of the arts."
"He is one of the first people in California who has truly influenced generations about an entire genre of music and he has taught hundreds of students as a professor at CSUN and has performed internationally," said Diediker.
In addition to honoring those artists who have paved the way, Diediker said organizers hope the evening will draw attention to the challenges and struggles that exist today, including the fight for educational, cultural, artistic and literary freedom in Arizona.
