Community Arts Access Project
ACHF Cultural Heritage
As a result of this project, the repertoire of the Mexican Folk Dance Group will expand. Our audience will be exposed to Maypole dancing from both Mexican and European traditions, an art form they have not previously experienced. At least 700 people, approx. 1/2 of Hispanic origin, and 1/2 from northern European origin will experience the Cinco de Mayo fiesta. To know if we have achieved our goals, we will...Videotape the new dance(s) learned by the group and retain this recording for reference as we prepare for future performances. Provide the opportunity to see this dance, which is new to most in the community, as well as solicit feedback about it. By using numbered meal tickets issued to fiesta guest we will have an accurate count of fiesta attendees. Nearly all of the people that eat the meal watch the performance.
Successful cultural heritage preservation activity with the majority of participants indicating a positive cultural experience. Attendance was lower than expected.
