La Mezcla

An Afternoon with La Mezcla

Saturday, May 8, 2020 @ 3:00pm EST

Join La Mezcla for an afternoon of virtual dance performances, live music and interactive movement workshops! La Mezcla will be sharing some original rhythmic Tap dance choreography, excerpts from our show Pachuquísmo, and a sneak peek of new material. Then, we’ll take a virtual trip to Veracruz, Mexico, where you’ll learn about the traditions of Son Jarocho music, instruments and Zapateado (footwork). After you’re introduced to some members of the company, it will be your turn to dance; Director Vanessa Sanchez will lead you through some rhythmic movement activities that dancers and movers of all ages can enjoy! We’ll get everyone’s hands and feet moving for justice.
