Fiesta de Navidad: La Pastorela Folklórica
Friday & Saturday, December 18-19, 2015
The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center presents the annual Dance Academy Fiesta de Navidad “La Pastoreal Folklorica” at the historic Guadalupe Theater on Friday & Saturday December 18 & 19 at 7 p.m. La Pastorela Folklorica is a fun representation of the traditional Shepherds play with a folklorico and flamenco flair. In la Pastorela Folklorica, written by Hiedi Cabral, this version highlights the Guadalupe Dance Academy performing beautiful traditional Mexican Folklorico and Flamenco music and dance throughout the evening. Guadalupe Dance Company members play the traditional characters of Mary, Joseph, Lucifer and the archangel while the Academy’s youngest performers play the parts of townspeople and shepherds. Under the influence of Lucifer more experienced Academy performers do their best to distract the shepherds from their mission of welcoming the newborn king. Sure to be a heartwarming and entertaining performance, audiences will likely make it an annual tradition.
The program features the choreography of Academy Instructors Belinda Menchaca, Jeannette Chavez, Rodrigo Gonzalez, Crystal Zuniga and Connie Espinoza and offers students the opportunity to fundraise for new costumes for the 2016 performance season.
Tickets are $10 general admission and can be purchased at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center.
