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.
