About Mitotiliztl Yaoyollohtli

La Danza Mexihka (Azteca) is a living, evolving and cultural tradition filled with the artistic and spiritual tradition of the Mexihka.  La Danza is a form of prayer, individual and yet communal.  It is a way of life, all encompassing.

It is a rich blend of music, choreography, poetry, theater and most important of all, of deeply held spiritual faith. 

Using brilliant colors in their regalia, headdresses and musical instruments, the Mexihka dancers communicate across generations, to carry on a tradition which they have been entrusted with.  Using intricate dance steps, turns and jumps, the dancers evoke a kinetic prayer.

Drums, rattles, seed pod shells and flutes unite to create a mind expanding experience that reflects the cultural heritage of Mexico and Aztlan.

Mitotiliztli Yaoyollohtli (Heart of the Warrior Aztec Dancers) has been sharing these traditions in the DFW area for 25 years and continue to share the culture with the public while maintaining alive the centuries old ceremonies and rituals.
