Hello! My name is Mina Castaneda and I am a Folklorico Dance teacher. I have been dancing for around 13 years and I have been teaching for 5 years. I am extremely proud of my culture and all the beauty it holds. I teach students and perform because I’d like to share my culture with the rest of the world. I’ve performed in many theaters, such as Santa Clara University, Mexican Heritage Plaza, Mexican Consulate, and even a Warriors basketball game. I also have a passion for my community and giving back to it in the form of performances with our group around the city. Thank you!
