The legacy of dance in Jamaica, Queens is rich but only somewhat storied. The Jamaica Dance Festival celebrates Jamaica’s rich dance legacy — and its dynamic future — and does so in grand fashion! Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s mission is to celebrate the rich diversity of Mexican and Mexican-American cultural heritage through dance-based programming including live music. To this end, the organization produces the following:
– Professional Performances via its touring company
– Arts-in-Education and cultural enrichment programming
– Community outreach activities that are free or low-cost and target the underserved Mexican and Mexican-American community
Calpulli celebrates the rich dance and music traditions of Mexico’s diverse cultural history interpreted through its unique artistic vision. The fresh, vital repertoire honors Mexico’s past and Mexican-American cultural expression in the United States. Calpulli Mexican Dance Company also does business as Calpulli Danza Mexicana.
