Congratulations! Valeria Rodriguez!
She is our fourth winner for the #ulatinxchallenge.
Here is more information about Valeria in her own words: "Hi my name is Valeria Rodriguez, I was born in Atlanta, GA, but my parents are from Aguascalientes, Mexico. Dance has always been a part of my life since I knew how to walk. The first classes I began taking were classic ballet and jazz. After a few years, I learned hip hop, and four years ago I joined Ballet Folklorico Sol Azteca at Saint Thomas Church to learn Ballet Folklorico. Ballet Folklorico (folkloric dance) is the traditional Mexican dances, that focuses on different states and regions of Mexico, with different music, vestuario (costumes), skirt movements, postures, choreography, feet, and body movements. Ballet Folklorico is where not only I love to dance but I get to represent my most beautiful culture through the Hispanic community, and I’m proud of that. The video I submitted represents the state of Jalisco with the song of La Madrugada (the dawn) and I’ve created my own set of steps and movements. Hope you like it! "
