Founded in 1999, M√©xico 2000 is a professional dance ensemble. Bring the flare of Mexican culture to your event! Dance performances are fast-paced and nonstop, featuring dances from different regions with their European, Mayan/pre-Columbian, and South American influences. These dances highlight the beauty, romance, and culture of traditional M√©xico. The programs ‘Fiestas de M√©xico!,’ ‘D√≠a de Muertos’ & ‘Christmas in M√©xico’ are available in an educational and concert-type option. Presentations range from 20 minutes to 2 hours. At Fiestas de M√©xico educational school shows, audiences will learn history about Mexican holidays while connecting to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills in Spanish language arts, social studies, fine arts, and music while enjoying the most beautiful and representative dances, costumes and music from different regions of M√©xico. During these interactive shows, audiences will participate by clapping, yelling (cheers of joy/gritos), stomping, and selected students will try out steps with music on stage. School study guides and concert programs are available. ‘Christmas in M√©xico’ is a compilation of traditional Christmas dances & songs (villancicos) including the traditional Pastorela, the Pi√±ata, the three Wise Men & Fel√≠z Navidad! Presentations are strictly focused to preserve and promote Mexican traditional heritage. Questions and pictures are allowed at the end. Photo by Leopoldo A. Palencia.
