In Deming, students from Red Mountain Middle School performed traditional ballet folklorico for residents and staff of the Mimbres Memorial Nursing Home this week. The dance class is taught by Raquel Calles, who also teaches ESL, (English as a Second Language) for seventh and eighth graders at Red Mountain Middle School. The students have been practicing after school for two days a week and were very excited to share their talents with others in the community. Thank you to Raquel Calles and ballet folkorico dancers for sharing joy with others this holiday season!
