"With a veteran company of dancers and musicians, Quetzalli offers up a "heady rush of tapping heals, dazzling costumes and insistent rhythms!" _Kansas City Star
Founded in 1985, the group has crisscrossed the globe exciting audiences of all ages. Their visual fiesta of culture and folklore features many regional dances of old Mexico, in particular, their home state of Veracruz (birthplace of the world famous "La Bamba"). The music, performed live on authentic stringed instruments, punctuates the meticulous movement, colorful clothing and perfect pulse established by the dancers. Earning standing ovations from Cuba to Malaysia, Quetzalli proves they are one of Mexico's most popular exports!
Already with stellar English and Spanish speaking educational outreach support, Quetzalli's 25th Anniversary in 2010/11 is certain to reveal new program selections and more costume changes to the troupe's acclaimed stage performance.
