Tradicional Danza Mexica, which originates from central Mexico, could best be described as “a prayer in movement.” It combines the music of sacred instruments—the drum (huehuetl), hand drum (panhuehuetl), the rattles (ayacaxtlis), and the foot rattles (coyollis)—with the movement of dancer’s bodies. Master artist Agustin Diaz learned this art form when he joined the troupe Danza Mexica Quetzalcoatl in 2006. Agustin’s apprentice, Rosa Garcia, is highly skilled dancer, drummer, and singer. She began practicing Danza in 2012, when she joined the Mexica group Danza Mexica Quetzalcoatl.
