Our students will be dancing a baile folklórico dance called la Raspa that originates in the eastern Mexican state of Veracruz. Below is a youtube video of the dance.
Will they have costumes? What do they need to wear?
Yes, we will have costumes!!
Girls (12 in class):A few lovely mommies are sewing 12 long skirts so the girls will wear those. Please have them wear shorts underneath! They will need a plain white shirt or blouse to wear with it. Their hair needs to be braided during the day on Thursday- it’s going to be beautiful!
Boys (11 boys): The boys will all have sombreros (please purchase those) and colorful belts/cummerbunds. They will need to wear dark slacks and a white button up shirt if possible.
Booths and Volunteering!
Our class is in charge of 2 booths: the Nacho Booth and the Soccer Game. We will be selling Nachos with Srta. Smith's class so we will be sharing those jobs with her parents.
A form will be sent out tomorrow with the jobs that our class is responsible for! Below that, there is a donations list for the ingredients we need to make nachos. If you prefer to donate $10 rather than take a trip to Costco/Walmart, that would be fine too! Just note your name with a $ next to it so we know that item will be paid for- and maybe I can recruit someone to do the shopping :)
Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or other ways you would like to help. I am looking forward to an amazing event!
