Viva Mexico Dance Society
Viva Mexico Dance Society’s mission is to promote the awareness of Mexican culture through the art of dance. The Society encourages the preservation and sharing of Mexican traditions throughout the community by fostering relationships, programs and activities that increase knowledge and awareness among Calgarians.
Viva Mexico Dance Society was founded as CALMECA Dancers in 2001. Its membership is comprised of Mexican and Canadian adults, teenagers and children.
Viva Mexico Dance Society has chosen folk dances as a meaningful way of portraying the culture and daily life which make up the wonderful traditions of Mexico. The elaborate footwork shaking the wood and the swirling of skirts speak of love, the end of a hard work day, or memories from the past. Viva Mexico Dance Society expresses the rhythms of Mexico with movements that communicate one simple message: The Joy of Life.
