‘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.
