Gabriella Mendoza-García directs the TAMIU Ballet Folklórico
and the TAMIU Ballet Folklórico Juvenil, and said her professional
experience as a dancer provides students with an informative and fun environment.
"I love to dance and to share the world of dance with my students.
We are constantly learning new dances from areas throughout Mexico and
the children really learn a lot, not only from the physical movement,
but from the history that goes with every dance," said Mendoza-García.
