The Aztec dancers of Blackfoot in the Danza Azteca Quetzalcoatl will celebrate its 10th anniversary this Saturday, Aug. 26, at Jensen Grove. The group will begin to perform at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. The dancers will be at Jensen Grove from noon to 8 p.m.
Everyone is invited to attend. It's free admission.
This group was founded in October 2007 in Blackfoot for the Virgin of Guadalupe celebration.
"The Aztec Dance is our form of prayer and a total way of life and communication," Rocio Perez, said. "The group is formed of men, women and children. The main focus is on promoting the richness of the Aztec culture, being represented by dance, one of the most spiritual ways."
She added, "We do presentation all over southeast Idaho, northern Idaho, Utah and surrounding areas. Our purpose is to represent our ancestors, our Mexican culture, our people."
They perform 24 dances.
"The steps that go with the dances have meaning," Perez said.
