Description

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, one of Mexico’s most popular exports returns with a veritable fiesta of culture and folklore. The history of Mexican dance is long and rich, starting with the ancient civilizations that flourished in the country preceding the arrival of the first Europeans. Today, that legacy reflects a cultural melting pot, combining Mexican, Indian, Spanish, and African elements. The company celebrates that diverse history and the people of Mexico in colorful performances that have earned standing ovations from Cuba to Malaysia. The music will be performed live on authentic string instruments.
