The Consulate General of Mexico in Nogales, Arizona, Bowman Senior Residences, the Cultural Arts Committee, Nogales Community Development and Kory Mercantile are pleased to present for the first time in Nogales to “His majesty el Danzón” through the series event “Tardes de Veracruz”.
Originated in Cuba, Danzón made it to the shores of Veracruz and Yucatan at the turn of the 20th century. Ever since, it is a reference on the cultural landscape of central and southern Mexico where dancers of all ages flock to the city squares to “danzonear” one night of every week.
Come and join us on Thursday, June 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at Bowman Senior Residences and enjoy emblematic dances and music from Veracruz, presented by the talented professor of Mexican Folks Dance, Eduardo Talavera.
