Antigua Area – Group or Private Tours – Flexible Itineraries:
CHILDREN’S FOLK DANCE PRESENTATION – Available every day “Niños con Bendición”
Niños con Bendicion (“Children with Blessing”) was created to provide and educational opportunity for the children in their community while maintaining their cultural roots. The group currently has 17 +/-children ages 6-15 years old from some of the most impoverished families in the village of San Antonio Aguas Calientes (20 min from Antigua). The children present a few (short) Mayan folk dances involving the crop planting and corn harvest as well as some traditional Guatemalan folk dances. This is an excellent opportunity to see local culture in a “typical” home – try weaving, grinding corn, make tortillas and get a taste of daily life. A small snack (safe to eat) is presented after the dances (your home made tortillas with beans). Opportunity to shop for textiles and home made crafts – proceeds from all sales go directly into their education fund.
