The Round Rock ISD Alma Mexicana Ballet Folklorico group put on a traditional Spanish dance performance in the cafeteria during lunch on Thursday, Sept. 3. Dressed from head to toe in traditional Spanish clothing, the students performed a number of different dances throughout first and second lunch. The show was a complete surprise to almost everyone, as the event wasn’t announced or promoted ahead of time.

“I think that [the performance] is amazing. I had no idea they were going to be performing today at lunch,” Vanessa Tobias ‘23 said.

The dancers attracted a fair amount of attention from the student body, many of whom took a break from their conversations to either watch or take photos of the performance. While the members of the Round Rock ISD Alma Mexicana Ballet Folklorico group performed the vast majority of the dances alone, they did encourage audience participation in some of the simpler dances. 

This performance came at the end of Hispanic Heritage month and another performance by the same group will be held at the RRISD Performing Arts Center today, Saturday 28, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are one dollar each.
