roots.

My final project. And I mean, my FINAL project. Whoa, I can't believe that was my last photojournalism class. It took a whole lot to get to this point and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

The idea of my project came from my Grandpa. An inspiring man who strongly believes in never forgetting your roots. He is strongly rooted in his heritage and as a result of him, his children, grandchildren, and even his great-grandchild are proud of their Β culture.

I worked with three dance groups, Ballet Folklorico, Bhangra, and Native American, and documented how dance has preserved their culture. Here are some shots I took of Bhangra Elite and Ballet Folklorico Espiritu Latino, to go with the video! I'm so thankful these dance groups accepted me into their groups. They are so dedicated to dancing and proud of their culture. It was very inspiring to work with each group.
