About Ballet Nepantlawww.facebook.com . . . Saturday 9/30 at Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm. New Company. Nepantla is an Aztec term referring to the â��in-between-nessâ�� of cultures, pertaining specifically to what the Aztecs experienced when being colonized by Spain. Ballet Nepantla explores the in-between-ness of cultures within the realm of dance, harmonizing European influenced contemporary ballet with traditional Mexican folk dance. Nepantla's authentic choreography respects and honors the indigenous wisdom of elders, their villages, and the artistic knowledge of creators across Mexico. And it fuses elements of contemporary ballet to make meaning of the cultural and historical narratives of those who live in "in-between" spaces.
