Calpulli Tonantzin

Calpulli Tonantzin is an Aztec dance group. Dance ceremonies are opened and closed by burning copal to the four directions. Our dances represent the cosmos, the energy of every living being. We dance to the beats of the huehuetl, or “drum” in the nahuatl dialect of our ancestors.
