Dance Presentations


Like our Aztec and Mayan ancestors who came before us, Tezkatlipoka continues in the wearing of traditional regalia (Tonalkayotl) and playing musical instruments as a way to honor the sacred dances and songs passed down from our ancesters.
Audiences will be awed by large headdresses of colorful plumage, seed pod rattle anklets and copal tree-resin incense that add to the vibrant dances and powerful drumming style of Aztec percussion. Specialty dances, available by request in advance, include the “Fire Dance,” where dancers express respect for fire and the elements. Other specialty dances include Aguila Blanca, the "White Eagle" dance which illustrates the battle between the white eagle and the jaguar, which symbolize the duality between day and night. Tezkatlipoka also shares and explains the meaning of each dance, and upon request, can incorporate key  themes and messages into the presentation talking points with advance notice. Please visit our video and photo gallery pages for media and photos of recent presentations.For a truly unique and powerful Aztec Dance and Drum presentation, please contact Tezkatlipoka.
