“Copa de Amor Y Ritmo” reflects the overall theme of the 2014 Carnaval by saluting the World Cup in our “Copa” presentation. The contingent has wonderful uplifting music, rhythms, and dance moves in its choreography. Our cup overflows with our Latino dance and our Love for our culture!

MCCLA’s contingent presents a contemporary fusion of Latino Caribbean movement fused with reggaeton, a little Zumba (Brazilian inspired movement) and cumbia. We call our dance choreography SalzaZumbaton! Like MCCLA’s mission, we represent all Latino culture and elements. Brenda Perdue, a seasoned Zumba teacher, will lead our contingent. Our mix of contemporary music will be provided by DJ Rumorosa, providing the sounds of contemporary Latino artists such as Wisin & Yandel, el Rubio Loco, and salsa favorites. As in any team, we have our mascot, the MCCLA Jaguar, who represents divinity and power in Mexico, Central and South America and all other places where the Jaguar roamed.

The Thomas Edison Charter Academy students, teachers, and parents will join MCCLA’s contingent, as in the last 7 years.
