The Tlacopan Aztec Dancers from Mexico City
The Tlacopan Aztec Dancers are traditional Aztec Indians from Mexico City.
The TLACOPAN AZTEC DANCERS have had the opportunity to come to Canada and the United States to perform. Some of the dancers have travelled to Switzerland, Germany, Russia, Austria, Italy, Greece, Spain, and Belgium to dance. Ritual dances dating back to the pre-Spanish conquest are performed by the Aztecs in their gorgeous, hand-made dresses which are adorned with red, blue, yellow and green macaw feathers and rare six foot long pheasant feathers.
The performance of the Tlacopan Aztec Dancers is very exotic in nature and enables the spectators to step back in time and envision the beauty and cultural richness of the ancient Aztec Indians.
