Performing this year in Feria is:

Los Tecuanes

Grupo Los Tecuanes, a Mexican dance group based in the Washington, DC area,  will perform two dances.  Los Viejitos is a typical Mexican dance showing the playful character of Mexicans as they age and make fun of themselves and yet respect their maturity.  The second dance is very typical of Puebla and represents the strong Native American (Mixtec/Aztec) influence on the Mexican culture.  The characters are in pursuit of the Jaguar or is the Jaguar in pursuit of the Characters? Seeing the performers wearing impressive handmade masks and costumes, you will experience a very different element of Mexican culture than the folkloric ballet dances one usually sees.
