Dancing for the dead

Día de los Muer­tos, the mas­sive Mex­i­can fes­ti­val on Nov. 2, hon­ours the beloved de­ceased with fab­u­lous food and dance. A T.O. Aztec dancer and a Mex­i­can folk dancer show us how to party.

The Mex­i­can way! Hon­our­ing my de­ceased loved ones, greet­ing them at the al­tar with of­fer­ings of special food and things that they en­joyed when they were alive. I will be tend­ing to my al­tar at home, as taught by my grand­mother. Also, I will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a num­ber of events as an Aztec dancer. My grand­par­ents, my grand-aun­ties, grand­uncles, friends, some el­ders who were my teach­ers, peo­ple who are no longer here but left a special place in my heart.
