Topic - Maru Montero
Maru Montero left for the United States from her home in Oaxaca, Mexico, with just one pair of dance shoes. It was a sacrifice. But now she has her own dance company and directs the National Cinco de Mayo Festival, which took place on the Mall on Sunday.
"It was a need that made us into who we are," said Ms. Montero, as she paused for a few quiet moments before drums and flutes called the dancers to the stage.
