Dance Master Class

    Mesoamerican Indigenous dances of the past will be at the forefront as we learn bailes Aztecas. Using sounds to create sets of foot sequences, we will indulge in repetition while staying connected to the drums as the heart of the form.

    Alfonso Cervera holds an MFA in Experimental Choreography from the University of California, Riverside. He is a Queer first generational Mexicano/a/x choreographer, performer, educator, curator, and activist. Along with his degree, he holds professional certifications in Asana Yoga, Reiki Healing, and has recently been elected as Executive Director of Show Box L.A. His research and specialization as an independent artist, focuses on the conversation between queerness, Ballet Folklorico and Afro-LatinX social dances in a contemporary auto-biographical embodied experience that he calls Poc-Chuc. Poc-Chuc, an emerging and inclusive dance technique developed by Cervera, weaves these techniques as a pedagogical tool to adhere to the current times and to create representation for marginalized communities.
