Ballet Folklórico Mexicano de Northwestern: Ritmo de Mis Ancestros held Colores de la Primavera, its second annual spring show on May 29 at the McCormick Auditorium in Norris. The dancers performed dances originating from various regions of Mexico, including Chiapas, Jalisco, Veracruz and Sinaloa.
Mariachi Northwestern also performed at the show, and agua de horchata was served to the audience.
Ritmo de Mis Ancestros started at the Northwestern when students came together in Willard's basement to dance to the music they grew up with.
"Coming to Northwestern, it has been important to stay grounded and connected to our roots," Weinberg freshman Jennifer Delgado said at the show.
In addition, the dancers chose to show solidarity with the 43 missing students of Ayotzinapa and their families. These 43 students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers' College of Ayotzinapa went missing in September 2014 while they were traveling to hold a protest. After a clash with the police, these students were taken to the police headquarters, and that was the last anyone heard from them. Each dancer wrote a 43 on her wrist to show solidarity with the missing students.
