A Folklorico Familia
Grupo Folklorico Los Laureles of Silicon Valley, CA was co-founded in the summer of 2007. Currently under the direction of co-founder Ashley Lopez, Los Laureles began as a small group of family members coming together to learn traditional Mexican dances. In the winter of 2007 MACLA (Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana) opened their doors and became 'home' to Los Laureles. In the past 13 years, Laureles has expanded to 12 classes over 3 cities ranging from 2 and up. They have performed for parades, private parties, NFL's The Oakland Raiders, MLB's The San Francisco Giants, apple, Super Bowl city, Danzantes Unidos, Garlic Festival and many more venues. Laureles is proud to produce 2 formal recitals every year showcasing the Bay Area's talent and love for the Mexican culture.
