5 pizza combos worth trying in El Paso

EL PASO—My love for pizza is undeniable. I find it fascinating that you could eat pizza every single day of your life and never repeat the same combination. Delectable, creamy cheese that melts in your mouth is the one layer that’s a constant among many variations. Usually, it is the endless toppings that range from spicy meats to fresh vegetables on top of a delectable crust make pizza unique. I decided to take my infatuation of pizza eating to the next level by driving to several of El Paso’s locally owned restaurants to try a diverse range of pizzas.

Contemporary dance studio hopes to go with the flow Downtown

EL PASO – The desert sun blasting through the clear glass windows and bouncing on the gleaming wood floors followed the graceful movements of the dancers to the slow beat of the music. Located on the fifth floor of the historical Abdou Building in Downtown El Paso, Sound and VisionStudios opened its doors to lovers of contemporary dance in late August. “Right now we are trying to find a niche,” said Jennifer Burton, 33, co-owner of the studio, which has become a unique place for clients to practice the art of contemporary dance. Burton co-owns the studio with her husband, Justin Leeah. She lived in the downtown studio for 15 years when it was just her apartment, moving out in January 2014 to turn it into a dance studio.

At 80, El Paso folklorico pioneer Rosa Guerrero still lets faith guide her steps

EL PASO – Dressed in a bright orange jacket adorned with a necklace and a crucifix pendant, Rosa Guerrero flashes a warm smile, projecting the trademark youthful spirit and upbeat stamina that belie her approaching 80th birthday. “Age is just a matter of the mind,” Guerrero said as she sipped her cranberry and orange juice drink, a mix she concocted herself. “If you don’t mind, then it doesn’t matter.”

Guerrero’s long resume in the professional dance world has not weighed her down. An avid dancer in all types of genres, a dance teacher of students that range in age from two-year- olds to 100-year-olds, and an ambassador for Mexican folkloric dance, her love for dance is evident in the rhythm of her hand gestures and expressive nature. “I started dancing in my mother’s womb,” Guerrero exclaimed as she sculpted a simple dance move with her hands.
