Another free program presented by the Untermyer Performing Arts Council!

          The Untermyer Performing Arts Council is proud to the renowned Calpulli Mexican Dance Company at 7:20 pm on Saturday, August 14th at Untermyer Park, 945 North Broadway, Yonkers.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s performances are like the traditions of Mexico: colorful, passionate, and inviting. The Company has a vibrant repertoire of dance with live music featuring cherished dance traditions, lesser-known stories from across Mexico, and original works capturing the Mexican-American spirit. Glorious costumes, contagious rhythms, and captivating performers are the company’s trademarks. Calpulli is a touring company that made its international debut in the Kingdom of Bahrain in 2013. It has also been featured at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Penn State, Dollywood Festival of Nations, CalTech University, Wortham Center in Houston, Texas, Jacob’s Pillow, and Carnegie Hall in New York City.

A tribute to the heart and soul of Mexico and the Mexican American community in the United States, under the Artistic Direction of Alberto Lopez Herrera and Music Direction of George Saenz, the Company of 20 dancers and core of musicians will take audiences on a voyage through eras and ethnic communities that comprise Mexican traditions. For more than a decade, Calpulli has recreated folk dances celebrating Mexican traditions and new contemporary works.

This Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s performance is sure to be another “don’t miss” Untermyer Performing Arts Council event!
