At the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, a troop of dancers came through who were just stunning - they the feathers and the dancing....I don’t know if they were in the vein of the Mayan or maybe the Aztec (my bad, I should be more up on this, but I freely and readily admit that I am not - happy for enlightenment, particularly from those in the dance troop). It was so beautiful.
Through the magic of Facebook, I am lead to believe that this dancer is Melinna Sixtos
as a friend of hers, I take it, tagged her in the photo. Melinna, you guys were great and inspiring.
UPDATE: Melinna Sixtos contacted me and confirmed that this is in fact her and the dance company is Danza Mexica Cuauhtemoc
- “a community of people dedicated ot the preservation and promotion of the Mexica/Azteca culture, ceremonies, warrior dance, accurate history and traditions.” Thank you Melinna! Looking forward to seeing you all dance again in the future.
