Dazzling costumes and authentic footwork characterize this colorful performance of traditional Mexican folkloric dances and music. The dances capture the distinct style of México’s Huasteca Tamaulipeca depicting the Christmas story.
“Cuetlaxochitl” (Flor de Nochebuena/Poinsettia) recreates the traditional motifs of yuletide with displays of color and light showcasing the essence of the season’s spirit. The concert culminates in a collage of ofrendas; children from the audience will be invited to dance and break piñatas.
This event features International Guest Artists Los Jilgueros de Altamira from Altamira, Tamaulipas, México, Mariachi Internacional and Aztlán Dance Troupe.
