February 1, 2019 | 8 PM | FREE Public Performance

The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center launches its 2019 Schedule of Cultural Arts Programs with a FREE performance of  “Celebrando Tradiciones” its new monthly dance and music series running every First Friday of the month this year. Bringing together its two professional performance companies in residence, the Guadalupe Dance Co. and Mariachi Azteca de America,  “Celebrando Tradiciones” will feature a wide variety of Ballet Folklorico, Spanish Flamenco, Mariachi and Traditional Mexican music with no two shows alike. “Each month will showcase different regions, styles and dance traditions. Audiences can return throughout the year and have a different experience. We will also be featuring authentic renditions of dances rarely performed by other companies, staging beautiful Flamenco choreography with special guest artists, and even reviving classic work from our acclaimed Rio Bravo repertoire” says Dance Program Director Jeannette Chavez. 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Mariachi Azteca de America” says music director Gino Rivera. “It is rare that San Antonio audiences experience a professional dance company accompanied by live musical arrangements. This series will showcase the artistic range of both companies and produce a live show like no other in the city.” 

“We wanted to produce a series that was unique in San Antonio.” says Executive Director Cristina Balli. “The Guadalupe prides itself in presenting authentic cultural programs that truly reflects the heritage of our region. Downtown and the Westside have historically been the cultural epicenters of San Antonio yet there is not a monthly performing arts production in these areas that captures the essence of our culture’s traditional dance and music. Whether you are a native San Antonian, a resident of a surrounding city or a visitor to the region, you will have an opportunity every month this year to experience two of the  best professional performance companies in the Southwest United States.” 

The Free Public Performance of  “Celebrando Tradiciones” on Feb. 1, 2019 will officially launch the entire year of cultural programs offered at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center. Loyal patrons, new audience members, and press outlets will be able to learn about the center’s year of events and take a calendar home with them. “We wanted to kick off the year with a real treat for our audiences.
