Danza Azteca Taxcayolotl (DAT) is a grassroots Aztec dance group that is dedicated to preserving as well as nurturing the indigenous cultures of México as a means of fostering unity and connectedness between all cultures.
Danza Azteca Taxcayolotl has spent several years, through presentations and programs, teaching the Aztec traditions to youth and their families, particularly in Houston’s most critical and economically challenging communities.
The group is made up of people of all ages and professions: educators, students, artists, business professionals and community organizers who contribute to our community on a daily basis through their professions. However, they also continue to empower new generations to succeed by sharing the pride and beauty of their culture and traditions reflected in the Danza Azteca tradition.
