Opening Week Special Presentation
Jarocho – The Unexpected Mexican Dance Spectacular
Jarocho (Mexico)

Nearly 40 dancers and musicians from Mexico present an on-stage fiesta.  Rhythm, passion and magic reveal an unexpected Mexican dance spectacular Jarocho!

The ancient region of Veracruz in East Mexico is often regarded as North America's first melting pot of African, European, and Native American cultures. The Son Jarocho, for instance, is a genre that combines Spanish flamenco, pre-Columbian and African music. Jarocho is not only the name given to music and dance unique to Veracruz, but also a way of life for generations who had lived in this region.

Jarocho opens with 'Zapateado', a spectacular dance show piece featuring more than 20 dancers on stage. This is followed by a series of diverse and unique performances: 'La Bruja' (The Witch) is shrouded with the mysteries of the Veracruz culture; 'Ritmo' (Rhythm) is an animated dialogue between the percussionists and dancers based on Jarocho traditions; the rhythmic and liberated 'Noche Cubana' (Cuban Night) reflects the influence of salsa and Cuban culture on the ancient city; 'Jarocho' takes the show to its climax in a fusion piece...

With a live music band on platforms, beautiful costumes and a set based on white, black and red themes, this spicy Mexican dance music extravaganza and grand stage production is a visual feast that combines both the traditional and contemporary. You'll be in awe of the energy!
