Grupo Folklórico Miztontli, founded in 2006 by Denise Garcia, is the University of Arizona’s first and only Mexican folklórico dance group created specifically to serve the students in the university community. We provide our dancers the opportunity to develop/expand their confidence and presentation skills, build community, and reconnect or learn about Mexican culture through dance. Miztontli is currently under the leadership of Joel Saldaña, Adrian Gonzales, Luisa Becerra, Jaycee Ramanousky, Perla Reyes, and Bryan Cruz.
