Dancer and Costumes Person Originally from Brooklyn, Carmen enjoys photography, scrapbooking, and dancing. She’s lived in Richmond since 1994. “I joined the group because Bomba y Plena is in my Puerto Rican roots. As a child, I was able to learn about the history of our folklore. I love the music and I love to dance. Through this group I can represent Puerto Rico, and bring the dance alive to everyone to see and enjoy.”
Originally from Veracruz Mexico Lizz is a Mexican folk dancer who enjoys crafts, drawing painting, cooking and is always happy to learn the food and culture of other countries. Lizz joined Tradición because “it feels like a family”.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moved to Virginia in 2008. The main reason I joined the group is because growing up as a New York Rican my whole life I was proud just to be Puerto Rican but never really knew anything about my culture. I saw Salsa Guy Richmond at a public event and just knew this is what I was missing culturally. The environment, the comradery, and values, has made it all worth it. I love to dance and love what we offer. I do this to pass down these traditions to my daughter.
Alexandra arts, craft, photography and sports (volleyball working out). I joined because Josey is a great sales lady .. LoL, but really I need something fun and creative in my life.
