                    Dia de los Muertos

In Mexico, Fiestas are a form of national recreation celebrating many different aspects of culture and society. This program challenges learners with different dances tying into  "Dia de los Muertos" (or Day of the Dead) celebrations. During the program, students learn about and try variations of traditional dances with emphasis placed on how each dance/activity embodies a specific message or concept inherent to the Fiesta, including:

  • “Dance of the Little Old Men” (Los Viejitos)
  • “Hand Waving Dance” (a ritual done in cemeteries and at the ofrenda)
  • "The Flyers" (Los Voladores)
  • “Skeleton Dance” (in the cemetary during the all-night vigil)
