About Ballet NepantlaNepantla is an Aztec term referring to the Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½in-between-nessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ 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. Through a fusion of Mexican folklorico, contemporary dance, and classical ballet, Nepantla explores the "in-between" spaces of trans-historical cultures. It brings original and spectacular performances to communicate the narrative of living in the middle of physical and metaphorical spaces.
Ballet Nepantla presents Sin Fronteras, a synergistic celebration crossing geographic, historical and artistic borders. Sin Fronteras explores the in-between-ness of cultures within the realm of dance, harmonizing traditional Mexican Folklorico, Contemporary Ballet, and West African dance in a way no other show has done. Let Ballet Nepantla captivate you September 16th with a show you don't want to miss!
