Grupo Tarasco Celebrates 20th Anniversary
On Saturday, December 19 the Cook Arts Center celebrated the 20th anniversary of Grupo Tarasco, the Arts Center's resident dance troupe. Josie Cedillo-Guillen, who founded the group 20 years ago this fall, was honored for her dedication and the impact she has made on countless Latino youth through mentoring and preserving their culture through Mexican folkloric dancing. About 100 people attended the celebration and were treated to a fantastic performance by Grupo Tarasco, including the first ever performance by the Arts Center's beginning folkloric dance students.
