…a gift from above, a sentiment for creation…
With special guest artists Jochelle Pereña and Kristin Torok.
Cuauhtemoc Peranda Mitote is a dance company based in Xicano/Mexica Tradition, Voguing, and Contemporary Dance Practice.
Cuauhtémoc Peranda (Xicano/Meixca/Aztec, Mescalero Apache, & Two-Spirit) is a choreographer, dancer and scholar from Santa Cruz, CA. His dance training primarily comes from Tezcatlipoca Danza Azteca, Tlaloc-Chalchihuitlicue Danza Azteca, Stanford University, and Mills College. Since the age of 15, Cuauhtémoc has taught traditional Aztec dance to his communities and now continues to teach Aztec dance and gives lessons in voguing, and modern dance forms. Cuauhtémoc current artistic interest is the examination of Modern Dance’s relationship to the “Native American Indian”, and the unadorned communicative power of focused movement: Fierceness. He currently works as Artistic Director and Manager of his own company, Cuauhtemoc Peranda Mitote Dance Company, and is the Director of Choreography for Santa Cruz Chamber Ballet. When not a practicing artist, he works in administration for the Indian Health Center of Santa Clara Valley. He graduated with a BA from Stanford University, and an MFA in Dance from Mills College.
