Aztec & Nahuatl Dance & Culture presented by Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue

  • Oakdale Library 1010 Heron Avenue North Oakdale, MN, 55128 United States (map)

Join Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue at Oakdale Library! Come learn the symbols of the Meso-American calendar, experience the rhythms of an ancient people and begin to understand the connections between ritual and daily life.

Driving drum rhythms and dazzling costumes hold students’ interest, and through each step the dancer in full regalia gives life to the symbols of the dance. Aztec dance performance creates a connection between contemporary dancers and the elders who have preserved this expression of culture. The Aztec symbols of life are reproduced in the dance steps.
