2005

This tour was like a dream becoming true. For the members of the group getting to know Mexico was one of the most precious moments. And this has been made possible thanks to the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) and the Benemerita Escuela Nacional de Maestros which through their respectives cultural extensions departments and actively lead by Pedro Alonso, Milenko and in Slovakia by Dana Pastekova the director of the Group Magisterial, made the organization of this event a reality. These two weeks at the end of August and beginning of September 2005 were one of the most beatiful experiences for the folks of the group.

 

 The warm reception of the students and professors of Tec de Monterrey and Benemerita Escuela Nacional de Maestros was immediate in all the performances in the Campus Mexico City, Santa Fé and the Rosario premises of Escuela Normal Superior de Maestros , and this was an effective dosage of motivation for every subsequent performance of the group. Coming from Slovakia, the group prepared as well for the mexican audience- althoug not being their main style - a block of musical and dance slovak folclor with the help of the dancers from the Group Magisterial .

 Being in Mexico and not being able to visit some of the interesting places of this nice country would not be the best choice. So, during the time for leisure, it has been possible to visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan, Garibaldi square, the Historical down town, Xochimilco, the Museum of Antropology, and even Taxco among other places. As you can imagine, all the rich experiences of this tour will remain for a long time in the memory of our group and the dance group Magisterial.
