By now, you’ve seen all the “cholo zumba” videos that have been making the rounds, right? If not, watch them here: there’s this one, this one and this one.
K, now that you’re all caught up, Eddie G! created a tutorial video for all of you out there who want to learn a cholo zumba dance. Pull those old Dickies out of the closet and get your Sharpie and lip liner ready, because you’ll be dancing firme in no time.
The group performed for their families last Monday during a ceremony for the Secretariat of Education of Tamaulipas. Playing drums, shaking tambourines and dancing to the beat, the Kindergartners hyped up their audience with the lively show.
Thanks to a video of the performance, the world has been introduced to these talented Kindergartners and their spirited conductor, Oxana Thaili.
Little Oxana’s energy has made her the break-out star of these viral performances. Some viewers even dubbed her “Alondrita de la Parra,” a play on the famous Mexican-American conductor Alondra de la Parra. However, Oxana doesn’t just conduct. At points in their songs, the little maestro joins in on the singing, making us fall in love with her even more!
Accompanied by their music teacher Abraham Gómez on the synthesizer, the Kindergartners played several Mexican classics. Their interpretations of “La Banda Dominguera” and “El Manicero” have especially been applauded by audiences around the world.
The reactions from Latinx Twitter show just how far their performances have reached.
This Twitter user pointed out that young Oxana definitely has a future career in conducting.
Some pointed out that the effervescent mood from the Kindergartners is contagious.
We have to agree! Oxana’s energy helps to keep her fellow Kindergartners on beat and their united vibe is infectious.
The video even made it to composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Even the award-winning Broadway star can see Oxana’s talent and potential. High praise, indeed!
Oxana and her group are definitely giving us hope for the future generations.
This Twitter user reminds us that Oxana and her generation deserve a much better Earth than we are leaving them. Perhaps their songs can encourage us all to do better.
Even though we love their performances, we have to give you one warning before viewing.
Their songs are bound to get stuck in your head from constant replay. Still, it’s a risk worth taking to watch these Kindergartners perform.
Apparently, every year there is an Incredibles Super Dance Party in Tomorrowland, where fans get the opportunity to dance with Mr. and Mrs. Incredible. This year, the DJ put on Caballo Dorado and Mr. Incredible was about it. At first glance, it seems like some kind of holograph or automation, but Disney truly just does an excellent job with the costume design and giving Latino talent a place to shine.
So, like, is Mr. Incredible supposed to be a Mexican o que?
That is the question we all have right now. Clearly, the Latino kids dancing along are pretty stoked to see Mr. Incredible acting like everyone’s Mexican dad.
Mrs. Incredible was spotted dancing alongside the wall clapping to keep everyone excited about their dance.
She didn’t know the steps, but she certainly was bobbing her head and clapping along. That’s what you call a supportive wife and mother.
The fans have spoken and they are thrilled to see this happening.
Mr. Incredible is one of us. That carne asada invite is the equivalent of being dubbed either an honorary Latino or straight up Latino.
Here’s a closer daytime look at their costumes.
Back in 2014, the dance party went viral after Mrs. Incredible took a fall and her face fell off. It was a stunning moment, for sure, but it also gave the dance party some much-needed attention.
The Caballo dance is trending towards viral as Mexicanos everywhere get a good laugh.
Seeing the wife in the background clapping along is every tired abuela and white novia at the party. There’s always one.
We want to meet the Mexican under the mask.
The video is irrefutable proof that Disney has undercover Latinos paid to be the life of the party. Hire me.
It is truly such a magical moment in such a magical part that people are not sure how to deal with the excitement.
Who isn’t excited to see their culture represented at one of the greatest places in the world? It is like seeing your family perfectly and non-offensively represented in media. It is rare and so nice when you see it.
What do you think about this Mexican dance party?
Are you for it? Do you wish there was more going on? Let us know.
