Vanessa Sanchez & La Mezcla are currently booking virtual events for Spring and Summer 2021!
La Mezcla is happy to offer dance and music performances for audiences of all ages! Our concerts include Tap Dance, Son Jarocho zapateado and/or Afro-Brazilian dance and music along with a concert host, introductions that feature historical and cultural content, social justice viewpoints and rhythmic movement activities. Concerts can be geared towards specific age groups and/or education levels, or made accessible to all ages upon request.
Presenters may choose 2 of the following dance and music traditions to feature in your concert:
Tap Dance: This will feature an introductory history of Tap dance, 10-15 minutes of La Mezcla repertoire performances with intros and descriptions, and a short Tap lesson in which audience members will learn basic Tap steps and a short choreography.
Son Jarocho (from Veracruz, Mexico): This will feature a short introduction to the traditions and history of Son Jarocho music and dance, 2 pre-recorded performances of traditional music and Zapateado Jarocho (footwork from Veracruz, Mexico), and a short lesson in Zapateado Jarocho.
Afro-Brazilian Dance and Music: This will feature an introduction to the origins of the tradition, and the specific rhythmic focus of the performance, a pre-recorded performance with a Batería (live drum ensemble) and dancers, and a Samba Reggae dance lesson (for all levels).
We offer two performance options: live/pre-recorded or 100% pre-recorded.
The live/pre-recorded concert will feature a live and interactive host, live talks, and live movement activities alongside pre-recorded performances on a platform such as Zoom. This will be recorded and can be viewed by your audience members for 1-2 weeks following the live event. The 100% pre-recorded concert will feature all elements of the show, including the host, talks, movement activities and performances, pre-recorded and sent out in a video file or link that your audiences will have access to for 1 week to 1 month following its release.
