‘HUAPANGO’ Continues at the Chamizal Sunday Afternoon

“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.

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.

About Yol-Itzma Aguirre

A little about me, I am a proud El Paso, TX native. I have built my career working in national media and both – national and Texas – politics. Most recently, I was selected as one of only a handful of Latina writers (chosen from across the nation) to participate in a storytellers cohort as part of the Yale School of Journalism. I love traveling throughout Texas, finding those interesting stories that are hidden in everyday conversation. I write about people, pop culture, politics and my Texas Latina life; proudly walking through the world with El Paso “nopal-colored glasses” on.
