Calpulli Mexican Dance Company – Puebla: The Story of Cinco de Mayo

May 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$29
Calpulli Mexican Dance Company

It’s an underdog story with impossible odds. In 1862, a small group of soldiers in Puebla, Mexico banded together with everyday citizens to defeat the French army, the strongest military force of the time. Through folkloric and contemporary dance, live music and elaborate costumes, Calpulli Mexican Dance Company explores this unexpected victory from the now-famous date of May 5. Creating a “colorful land of music and dance,” (The New York Times) this Philadelphia premiere celebrates the culture and people of Puebla while revealing the true meaning behind Cinco de Mayo.

“It won’t be hard to coax your little ones onto their feet for some dancing with these seasoned pros.” (Time Out New York Kids)

The performance on May 5 features live music!
