A fusion of dance with aerial arts, contortion and acrobatics to communicate Indigenous pre-Hispanic, Mexican and Latin culture and create bridges between contemporary art and historical heritage.

photoDzul Dance fuses dance with aerial arts, contortion, and acrobatics to communicate indigenous pre-Hispanic, Mexican and Latin culture and create bridges between contemporary art and historical heritage. Artistic director Javier Dzul grew up in the jungles of southern Mexico performing Mayan ritual dance until the age of 16; he has since performed with Ballet Nacional de México, Ballet Folklórico de México, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Alvin Ailey Repertory Ensemble, and American Indian Dance Theater. He began choreographing and performing his own work in 1999, and established Dzul Dance in 2003.
