“It was a Virtual Performance that our students will never forget!”

Arts Horizons’ virtual arts education programs bring the power of the arts back to our communities in a safe and responsible way! Our virtual live performances and workshops take our students on a journey through so many different artistic mediums and cultural traditions. We are pleased to share with you a recent livestream assembly at Drexel Avenue School in Westbury, NY.

This past October, Calpulli Mexican Dance Company presented their signature assembly performance, “Viva Mexico,” via livestream. Calpulli’s mission is to teach and produce dance-based programming incorporating live music and theater to promote the rich diversity of Mexican cultural heritage. Calpulli celebrates the rich, regional dance traditions of Mexico’s diverse cultural history interpreted through its unique artistic vision. The fresh, vital repertoire honors Mexico’s past and immigrant life in the United States.

Ms. Grisel Pren, Calpulli’s Associate Artistic Director, led the students through interactive dance routines and shared performance reels of folkloric dances to showcase the fascinating world of Mexico’s diverse cultures and artistic traditions. Gregg Brenner from Drexel Avenue School Music department shared:

“The performance by Viva Mexico was fantastic! Our students at Drexel Avenue School enjoyed the lively interactive portion of the show. The dances were very engaging and our students learned a lot about different regions and cultures in Mexico. It was a virtual performance that our students will never forget!”
