BORDERS CROSSING

The visually stunning Ballet Folklorico Huehuecoyotl brings Mexicos colorful culture and heritage to their hometown of Elgin, one hour west of Chicago.

Julian and Cynthia Hernandez are the husband and wife team who turned their passion for Mexican dance into a successful one hundred person dance troupe, ranging from young children to men and women in their 40s. The dance company is named after the Aztec god of music and dance, Huehuecoyotl.
