About:

Steven Valencia, director of Calidanza, a Mexican dance group based in Sacramento, will yet again enlist his troupe of folk and contemporary dancers who will dress in colorful costumes for this year’s show.

This lively celebration, sponsored by Rodney Strong Winery and Los Cien will include a special performance with the LBC’s student mariachi band, Mariachi Cantares de Mi Tierra de LBC.

This free, family-friendly event will be held virtually due to concerns on limited availability of vaccines for children and the California COVID mandates on vaccination and testing requirements.

Last year’s event was also held virtually.

“We look forward to channeling the excitement of Christmas in Mexico into homes virtually this year and bringing Calidanza Dance Company back in-person when it is safe to do so.” -Sari Larson, Associate Director of Programs & Rentals at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Though the event at LBC is usually just one day, traditionally Las Posadas is a nine-day celebration that has its roots in Catholicism. It commemorates the journey that Mary and Joseph took in search for shelter before they arrived in Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
