Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Come discover the wonders of Mexican culture as The Azteca Folkloric Dance Company takes the stage at Vallarta’s beautiful performing arts venue, Teatro Vallarta, for one night only on Saturday, April 9th at 8 pm.

Established in 2003 at the Jalisco University of Science and Technology’s Puerto Vallarta campus, Azteca Folkloric Dance Company has presented more than 800 performances around the world, representing Mexico and Puerto Vallarta in Argentina, Canada and Cuba.

The group has won many awards, has been named "National Champions," and has organized four "National Folk Festivals" in Puerto Vallarta where over 30 invited groups from around Mexico have performed including a special Children’s Folk Dance presentation. Since its beginning, the company has grown to 5 separate performing companies, including special troupes comprised of children and teens.

Directed by Juan Antonio Salcedo Padilla, their performance at Teatro Vallarta will be bursting with Mexican culture, traditions and color. The first act will explore rhythms and traditions from around Mexico: including Polka in the north, Marimba in the south, Jarana in Veracruz and Huapango in the northeast.

The second act will feature our own state of Jalisco, taking the audience through the history of our state accompanied by traditional Mariachi. This will be a colorful celebration of the Mexican culture not to be missed.

For years, locals have been yearning for a state-of-the-art performance space that could handle world-class touring productions. With the announcement of The Azteca Folkloric Dance Company, expats, local nationals and visitors alike can now enjoy this top production without having to travel.
