George Memorial Library Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with Aztec Dance Performance

(RICHMOND) - Fort Bend County Libraries’ George Memorial Library will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a special live performance, “Danza Azteca Splendor!” on Saturday, Sept. 30, from 11 a.m. to noon, in the Jodie E. Stavinoha Amphitheater at the library, located at 1001 Golfview in Richmond.

Experience the world of Ancient Mexico with a performance of traditional Aztec dancing by Young Audiences of Houston arts partner Calmecac Tonantzin Yolilitzyotl (Houston Aztec Dance & Drum).


Discover a new way of looking at the world through Indigenous eyes, while learning about Aztec history, philosophy, language, culture, and foods. These concepts are expressed within the symbolism of movements, storytelling, drumming, and songs.


The dances are based on the Pre-Columbian traditions of the Nahuatl-speaking Teotihuacanos/Mexi’ca, and other indigenous nations of central Mexico, including the Otomi/Chichimeca nations of Queretaro.


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. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call George Memorial Library 281-342-4455 or the library system’s Communications Office 281-633-4734.
