Mazarte’s goal is to create a union between dance, research, and indigenous art in order to promote Mexican cultural heritage, bring history to life and provide educational programs for the communities we live in. At the same time, we believe our approach to art and culture must be holistic and with each program we reconnect and support the indigenous communities we left back in Mexico.
