Magical moments from Mexico come to life in Victoria! “Viva Mexico! Folklore Dancers Association”

Canadian Club of Victoria Dinner – Uplands Golf Club  Cocktails 5:30 pm – Dinner 6:00 pm

The vivid sights and stirring sounds of Mexico will be showcased at the Canadian Club of Victoria’s annual cultural dinner, with a performance by the “Viva Mexico! Folklore Dancers Association” of Victoria.  

The “Viva Mexico!” association is a group of friends of all ages who share a passion for Mexican culture and a deep love for the art of dance.  The troupe is proud to share with Victorians the traditional dances and costumes of many different regions of Mexico. 

The Canadian Club of Victoria celebrates the fact that the fabric of Canadian life is enriched with a population drawn from all parts of the world.  The 2011 census shows that more than 20 per cent of the Canadian population – one in five residents – was born outside of the country.  While the Mexican Canadian community is small in number, with less than one percent of the population of Greater Victoria, the community makes a contribution of immense value to the city’s vibrant cultural scene.

As with all Canadian Club of Victoria events, the evening is open to the general public:  Location:  Uplands Golf Club – 3300 Cadboro Bay Road Cost:  Members – $35, Non-Members $4. Tickets must be reserved in advance:  Available on EventBrite or by calling 250-370-1837  by Friday, April 10, 2015

For more information, contact:  Ellen Stensholt, President, Canadian Club of Victoria ~ Phone: at 250-544-1941 or Email:  ellen.stensholt@telus.net<ellen.stensholt@telus.net>;
