Early in her career in Hollywood, Summer Glau was one of the dancers, along with famous latin dancer and actor Jordi Caballero, of the musical play "Selena Forever", which was performed at the 2001 3rd Ritmo Latino Awards on October 18, 2001 in Los Angeles.
"Selena Forever" was done to honour Selena Quintanilla Perez, the Queen of TexMex, a Mexican American singer-songwriter who was tragically murdered at the young age of 23.
Find below photos of the participants, taken on the red carpet and backstage, including a photo of a young Summer posing with the dancers of the musical play "Selena Forever". I hope fans of Latino music will recognize some of their favorite artists:
Here's the press relase for the event:
Seventy nominees of the biggest and brightest stars of the Latin music world were announced today for the upcoming third annual El Premio de la Gente, Ritmo Latino Music Awards 2001. The Latino Music Awards 2001 is the first awards show in Latin music history where the public selects winners in a nationwide popular voting process. Latin music fans will vote nationally for their favorite artists at 325 Vons and 41 Ritmo Latino Music Stores.
The prestigious music awards will take place at the Shrine Auditorium on Thursday, October 18, 2001, at 8:00 p.m. in Los Angeles. A group of distinguished artists, including Mexican superstar Juan Gabriel, Celia Cruz and A.B Quintanilla y los Kumbia Kings, will be performing on a night dedicated to the life and music of the Queen of Tejano music, Selena.
El Tributo de la Gente, or Tribute of the People, will be an emotional celebration of Selena's life, legacy and her significant impact on millions of adoring fans.

I thought at the first the lady in the 1st picture that you showed was a dancer from DWTS.
That's a gem of a find Chris. I recognised her partner from that flamenco-type ballet the moment I saw him.
If only there was more but at least you can put a date to it.
JFYI, I was able to right click and copy the details that you attached to the photo and paste it on to the top left hand corner for my own reference using Paint:
