“HUAPANGO” by textbook definition, a Mexican style of dancing which includes fast rhythmic footwork of the toes and heels. The Ballet Folklorico Paso del Norte dancers did just that, and so much more!
It was a beautiful night at the Chamizal Memorial Theater, as the audience sat captivated by the traditional dance styles of Veracruz.
“HUAPANGO 2016” presented by the Centro Cultural Paso Del Norte under the artistic direction of Rudolfo Hernandez, consist of 40 dance sets overall broken into two acts with a 10 minute intermission.
There are plenty of familiar classics for everyone to enjoy such as, La Huasteca, La Bamba, Flor de Azalea, then we follow the progression with an infusion of other Latin American sounds, La Rumbantela, Quimbara and other favorites.
The story takes you through a colorful journey of style and magical sounds by Mariachi Raices de América. From the music, to the beautiful colors in the costumes, the precise choreography; stories of love, stories of community, at every moment, you will find yourself completely entranced in the dance.
A fun cultural event for the entire family or patron of the arts.
You can still catch the last show today, come experience the magic!
