Description

Join us on Saturday, September 23 for the Aztec dance workshop with re-known dancers Mapuchedub and Jesus Mora. Together they will lead a workshop that includes movement, teachings and traditional music. This workshop is open to all members of the community to attend. They have been working within the arts community for many years to bring their culture and traditions from Mexico to the community in Toronto.


About the Aztec Dance and Workshop:

Aztec dance is a traditional pre-Hispanic dance from Mexico. Aztec dance is a connection with mother earth and the universe, it is a prayer in movement. During this workshop people will be introduced to this ancient practice and be able to gain full knowledge of the dance. Participants will take with them the richness of Aztec/Mexica vision through this artistic discipline. This workshop is a representation of the eagle and the condor coming together through movement of the body and spirit.


About the Ka'nikonhrí:yo Gatherings:

The Ka'nikonhrí:yo Gatherings connects cultural leaders to the Indigenous community in Toronto. Leaders who discuss identity, wellness, language revitalization, traditional arts, ceremony, and history, as well as issues that face our communities such as climate change and the environment, decolonization, reconciliation, and sovereignty. Through monthly presentations, based on each leader’s own distinct nation and culture, the gatherings strengthen, empower, and support our community members. Ka'nikonhrí:yo means to have a good mind in Kanien'kéha (Mohawk).


Please bring shakers, comfortable clothes and water bottles.
