Performers from Houston Aztec Dance & Drum wear colorful costumes with feather headresses.

September 2023

Fort Bend County Libraries’ George Memorial Library in Richmond will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a special live performance, “Danza Azteca Splendor!” on Saturday, September 30, from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon, in the library’s Jodie E. Stavinoha Amphitheater.

Experience the world of Ancient Mexico with a performance of traditional Aztec dancing by Calmecac Indigenous Organization (Houston Aztec Dance & Drum). 

The intergenerational dance group educates on, and carries Indigenous life ways, throughout the year, honoring their ancestors' pre-Hispanic ingenuity and achievements, which included highly developed sciences and mastery of the arts.

The danzas honor one’s relation to Mother Earth, reflect all the earth's elements, and teach respect for nature and all life. 

Calmecac Indigenous Organization celebrates the rich mosaic that is Hispanic heritage by bridging these traditions from past to present with integrity, ensuring their preservation for future generations.

Made possible by the Friends of the George Memorial Library, this performance is suitable for all ages.

The performance will be presented in an outdoor amphitheater, and seating is concrete. Theater-goers are encouraged to bring cushions to sit on. Glass containers, alcoholic beverages, and popcorn are not allowed in the amphitheater.

The event is free and open to the public.
