Danza Azteca Splendor: Live Dance Performance!

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with Young Audiences of Houston Arts Partners, Calmecac Indigenous Organization!
Experience the world of Ancient Mexico in this multi-disciplinary performance of traditional Aztec dancing, a form of dance that has been done in private rather than public for nearly 40 years in the United States. Audience members will learn about Aztec history, philosophy, language, culture and foods that deliver a new way of looking at the world through Indigenous eyes. These concepts are expressed within the symbolism of movements, storytelling, drumming and songs. The dances represent the elements of nature, the universal four directions of the earth and our connected human existence through the “circle” concept where wisdom, harmony and culture meet with respect and equality. Audience’s senses are delighted with colorful feathered headpieces, the sounds of conch shells and shaking rattles, combined with the deep sound of the drums and high-pitched ocarina flutes. These dances are based on the Pre-Columbian traditions of the Nahuatl-speaking Teotihuacanos/ Mexi'ca, and other indigenous nations of central Mexico, including the Otomi/Chichimeca nations of Queretaro.
Audience Q & A will follow the performance.

On September 16, 1810, the Grito de Dolores translated to Cry of Dolores, began a rallying cry for freedom when a priest by the name of Miguel Hidalgo Costilla rang his church bell in Dolores, Mexico. He would deliver a powerful speech to the people of Mexico, soon after, a war against Spain began. Mexico would gain its independence at the Mexican Empire on September 28, 1821.

There are several ways you can celebrate Mexican Independence Day. You can join us tonight @ 6:30PM for Danza Azteca Splendor!

Gung Hay Fat Choy! I am taking Mandarin lessons from HCPL's Transparent Language through digital learning that offers every language under the sun! And it's free, y'all! #HighMeadowsLibrary #ForeignLanguageCourses
I enjoyed the genealogy class yesterday. It gave me so much pleasure to see my grandmother's name, along with the names of her parents and siblings, on a census taken in 1920 when she was only 15 yrs old. My grandmother died in 1997 at the age of 91. I will continue to seek out more records of my grandmother's mother. I'm looking forward to next month's genealogy class, and to the "Crack the Case" class, AND to the "History of Jazz" event, all coming up in February 2020. It will be a fun month. Thanks for all of these new programs. Just what I was looking for. See you soon!
Kids are excited about visiting the library.
What a lovely libary that contributes so much to the community. The staff is always open to help and assist any way they can. They also have free scans!! i love this libary. thank you guys :)
