    Grupo Folklorico Quetzel is a group of young people and adults who appreciate the international language of music with dance. The dancers are age five through high school who perform throughout the area and are recipients of First Place Awards in the Dance Specialty category from parades in Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, and Streamwood.  The mission of this group is to keep alive not only the Latin American culture through folkloric, regional dances from Mexico and South America, but also, other cultures that make up the world.  Their efforts strive to promote respect, acceptance, and appreciation of diversity that exists throughout our country and the world.  The group organizer is Adelita Zeier.
