Director, Compañia Folklorica Tenochtitlan (Mexico)
"For the dancers and musicians, it is greatly satisfying, to be at St. Peter's Square, and to hear the applause and feel the warmth of the people, it's very important for them.”

MARIA ELENA RAMIREZ
Dancer, Compañia Folklorica Tenochtitlan (Mexico)
"You get goosebumps and you feel a warm embrace from the people, which with this weather, very cold for us, feels great.”

The group spent nearly six months preparing for the trip, which included other parts of Europe. But they were especially excited to see the Pope.

Following the audience with Benedict XVI, they organized an impromptu concert at St. Peter's Square. Their colorful attire and unique sounds ensured a constant flow of curious onlookers.

"You're doing your own thing, but the audience rubs off their excitement, and makes you feel even more proud of your country, of who you are.”

FABIAN VICTORIA

"It makes me proud, it's a dream come true. I can represent my country with what I love most, my music, my heritage, my culture.”

With the Pope's blessing, the group will head back to Mexico, where their celebration will continue. With 25 years under their belt, they hope for more chances to dance and sing their way to the heart of the Vatican.
