  • Description:

    This Cinco de Mayo concert will present national talent, including Mex X from Florida, to join Detroit’s own nationally-known Motor City Rockerz and the Ballet de los Renacidos. The concert will provide a unique dance overview from traditional folkloric traditions to more current dance moves.  Thus the title “Old School Meets New School”. The concert will also highlight homegrown youth talent, Mariachi Juvenil Detroit, bred over the past few years at COMPAS (Center of Music and Performing Arts-Southwest). This group of young people has started to attract significant local attention.
