The cast and creative team of En Garde Arts’ Fandango for Butterflies (and Coyotes) will lead a traditional community celebration in which attendees are invited to participate. The En Garde Arts professionals will guide participants through the steps of the Zapateado, a lively and percussive dance typically performed during Mexican fandangos. During the two-hour event, they will also share the ways in which improvised musical verses are created.

A fandango is a traditional community gathering — originating in Veracruz, Mexico — in which stories are brought to life through music and dance.  

The Debra Lee Latta and Dr. Stanley E. Latta Endowment provides support for the Community Fandango.
