Young Audiences, Inc. of Houston presents Houston Aztec Dance & Drum
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.
Audiences 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.
