Experience the living tradition of Mesoamerica with Nahui Ollin as they present the pre-Hispanic traditions of central Mexico. Vibrant and active, the dancers’ movements represent and honor elements in nature, totem animals, deities and sacred actions. Both ritualistic and spiritualistic, program highlights include authentic attire and indigenous music instrumentation, traditional songs and stories. This show also explores how we are all connected with this culture through food, language, people, places, and words we all use.
This show is great for celebrations such as Hispanic Heritage Month, Day of the Dead, Summer Solstice, and is a great complement to curriculum related to Aztec and Mayan cultures.

The performance was outstanding, they were both educational and engaging. The performers were wonderful, they were on time and prepared for the performances.

...The group Danzas Ceremoniales de Mexico were great! The audience very much enjoyed learning about the history and culture of their dances and also many members of the audience participated in the dancing lesson. They were a great addition to our program and were enjoyed by all.Chinatown Chamber of Commerce
