INSTRUCTOR: ALICIA MENDIBLES

25659447 1708872932467385 7370895742096729079 NMaestra Alicia Mendibles is a third generation Mexican-American born and raised in Southern California. She started dancing at the age of eight. It was in the sixth grade that she began to form dance groups at her schools. She studied Mexican Folklorico under the direction Lily Aguilar and Maria Quiroz. She has shared the stage with many performers including: Linda Ronstadt, Lalo Guerrero, Mariachi Cobre, and Mariachi Sol de Mexico.

Maestra Alicia envisioned a place where she could promote cultural pride and self-worth through the art of dance. From this dream, she created the performing dance troupe Paso de Oro Dance Company in 1994. The dream flourished as she has produced thousands of performers and dancers over the years. Maestra Alicia represents the American born Mexican–she is dedicated to preserving the Mexican culture embracing current traditions and ideas established by Mexican-Americans who have culturally participated in United States since the 19th century. With courage, character and commitment, she takes pride in fusing the best of both her cultures.
