Join us for Somos Luceros - Dancing Valor: An Embodied Exploration of Resistance, Resilience & Respect
Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2, 2021, both days at 10:00AM PDT
Time Zones: 10:00AM PDT | 11:00AM MDT | 12:00PM CDT | 1:00PM EDT
This dance exploration is a tribute to the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla in 1862 when, fighting back against foreign domination, the Mexican Army emerged victorious over the French forces of Napoleon III. The holiday, known as Cinco de Mayo, honors this battle of the people’s resistance to colonization, their demand for respect, their pride, resilience, and valor in the face of such immense threats to their sovereignty. The playlist for this class draws from artists across the Americas and is nearly entirely in the Spanish language. This dance is crafted with the heartfelt intention to strengthen our sense of pride, dignity, and reverence for the challenges our ancestors faced to preserve (and save) their existence.
The dance moves are simple and guided by the language of storytelling. You are invited to receive the choreography, bring it into your body and make it your own.
