GRANDEZA MEXICANA FOLK BALLET COMPANY was founded by Jose Vences in September 2003. Currently, Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company has over 30 dancers and is a non-profit performing arts organization. The company was formed to advance the field of Mexican folk ballet, enhance the public’s appreciation for the diversity and depth of Mexican culture, and to present high-quality dance productions.
The Mission of the Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet Company is to perpetuate and showcase the splendor of Mexican Folk dance, and to cultivate and promote public awareness and appreciation of this rich and diverse cultural heritage.
The Old Adobe Mission is a true historic monument. Its beauty and simplicity of design, and the quiet majesty of the structure continues to call people to contemplation and serenity – truly, a still point in a turning world.
In 2000, Fr. Thomas Hever, Pastor of OLPH, determined that the little building needed to be restored for the community. A group of parishoners formed a committee dedicated to the restoration of the original, historic church. Their goal is to return the mission to a center of quiet and reflection for locals and tourists.
