Mexico Lindo Folkloric Dance Group emerged from the idea of Father Lorenzo Hubbard, the priest of the Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (Sacred Heart of Jesus) community in Minneapolis. Members of the youth program, Friends of Jesus, founded the group on November 19, 1999 and named it Mexico Lindo. Father Lorenzo then extended an invitation to the entire community, including youth and adults. The group had its first public appearance in May of 2000, performing at Sagrado Corazón de Jesús Church. After that the group has been participating in different communities as: schools, churches, universities, community centers, bussiness, festivals, etc.
In the fall of 2004, children began participating as well, and eventually formed the México Lindo Children’s Group in the winter of 2008.
Mexico Lindo is responding to the need to create positive programs where children, youth and adults can invest time and energy to develop and to provide a safe environment. One of the objectives of the group is maintain the proud of our Mexican heritage by showing all the different regions with the colorful customs and unique music for the general public enjoyment.
Today México Lindo has about 30 members, including children and young adults.
