Folklorico Luna Y Sol

The photograph that I took of the dance group Groupo Folkloric Luna Y Sol De San Josè State, captures the American Experience because it represents Mexican cultural heritage and dance intertwined, and reminds us that while we are all unique, we come together to pay homage to our heritage. Jennifer Castillo, the subject, dances with pride for her culture sharing this with the audience.
