Aztec Dance – Titlakawan – Begins February 7

Aztec Dancers in UUCS Sanctuary 2017-1-22Titlakawan (The Flowering Of The Self) Aztec Dance begins February 7. The group meets on Tuesdays from 7 pm to 9 pm beginning on February 7. All are welcome to attend. 

The teachings of the Aztec Dance are tied to the Pre-Hispanic roots of ancient Mexico. It serves to connect the dancer to a universal view of the Anawak culture and the Nawatl philosophy: a worldview of nature. The Aztec dance depends on understanding nature and draws its sustenance from it. Hence, the dance does not depend on the Western pedagogical approach but depends on the physical activity, with heavy symbolism in each dance and its specific steps. Aztec dance awakens and develops various human faculties which are essential across society but which the current educational system fails to implement in a conscious and permanent manner.
