Kick off the holiday season with a feast for the senses! In this performance, Fiesta Colorado Dance Company, ArtistiCO, and Mariachi Sol de mi Tierra take the audience on a tour of Christmas celebrations throughout the country of Mexico. The dances performed will feature original choreography based on traditional dances from the Mexican and Spanish dance masters. The performances represent the many dance traditions that are now a part of the rich cultural roots of Colorado.
The colorful Mexican dances performed by the Fiesta Colorado Dance Company are directed by Jeanette Trujillo-Lucero, while the ArtistiCO performances are directed by Jose Rosales and Alfonso Meraza. The extravaganza is accompanied by the lively music of Mariachi Sol de mi Tierra, under the direction of Juventino Romero.
