About Los Mejicas

Finale of our 50th Annual Spring Show at Mainstage Theater, UCSC (June 2022)


Grupo Folklorico Los Mejicas is a Mexican folkloric dance group from the University of California, Santa Cruz. We are one of the oldest student run organizations on campus and will be celebrating our 51st anniversary this June. By teaching and performing the regional music, dances and traditions of Mexico, Los Mejicas fosters an appreciation for the beauty and diversity of Mexican culture.

We are comprised of both students and community members and pride ourselves in accepting both new and experienced dancers. Students who wish to earn credit may enroll in MUSC 12-B, during Fall or Winter quarters.

Classes are held on Tuesdays: 7-9pm, Fridays: 5-8pm, and Sundays: 12-3pm.
