The dance steps were graceful; the skirts were twirling, and the recent performance by Alma Folklorica in the OPSU ballroom was very well received. – Michal Stachowski photo

Goodwell, OK – A great time was had by all in the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Ballroom last Thursday at Noche de Gala – a celebration of Hispanic music, dance and very good food. Teri Mora, the school’s Director of Hispanic Services, hosted the event as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

The entertainment portion of the evening began with dancing by Alma Folklorica, made up of area young people under Mora’s direction. Then, OPSU MARIACHI, under the direction of Jason Berg, took center stage and performed several traditional Hispanic songs. The performance was very well received and Berg said plans are underway for more appearances.

After the Mariachi performance, Alma Folklorica again went to work with another spirited dance routine and the delighted crowd (of nearly eighty) gave them a standing ovation at the conclusion of their routine.

Several very good people had a very good time at OPSU . . . at Noche de Gala.

It was a wonderful night of music and dancing at the recent Noche de Gala at Oklahoma Panhandle State University.  OPSU MARIACHI mixed brass, guitars, and strong vocals to produce the exceptional music.
