Danzas de Libertad Art Festival 2016 Presents: Mexican History Dance and Theater
In 2011, Danzas de Libertad was created to celebrate Mexican Independence Day in the month of September, and this year the event will be expanded into an Art Festival as well, with the great collaboration and support of Arte Americas and Warnors Center.
When the doors open at 6:00pm, our guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a large display of traditional Mexican costumes, researched and hosted by Cecilia Montoya Rios, along with an exhibit of photos and paintings from artists, hosted by James Ramirez. At 7:00 pm we will have a 2 hour show with our stage full of color, dance and music with traditional dances from Mexico, representing our rich history and culture since pre-hispanic times.
Danzas de Libertad 2016 guest groups performing: Ballet Folklorico Alta California, Ballet Folklorico y Marimba de Fresno, La Familia Azteca, The Irene Gonzalez Project, Danzantes de Tlaloc, Ballet folklorico de Madera, Los paisanos de Selma, from Salinas CA: Tonatiuh Danzantes Del Quinto Sol, and from Perris CA: Grupo Folklorico Cielito Lindo. In between the traditional dances, we will have dramatic scenes on stage presented by “Contraluz Teatral”, a local Spanish theater group. The show will conclude with the traditional Grito De Independencia by our Consul: David Manuel Preciado Juarez, who will call the names of our Mexican heroes followed by a” Viva Mexico” celebrating the two hundred and six years of freedom.
Advance tickets $12 and $16 at the door.
