By all accounts, the city's efforts to redevelop the Placita Santa Fe area have been successful. Markets, restaurants, well-tended apartment buildings and professional offices have pushed out the bars and flophouses that once gave the historic downtown a bad reputation.

This summer was shaping up to be like any other for 15-year-old twins Nancy and Gabby Marmolejo, whose only plans were to stay home and hang out with friends.

So, banda music is big, along with its accompanying dance, the quebraditas. The border-music dance sensation, a mix of German oom-pah-pah and Mexican folk music influences, has swept Orange County's Latino dance clubs and dominates Spanish-language radio in Southern California.
