Danzantes Unidos Festival DUF 2018 “Cultura Sin Fronteras” will take place on March 23, 24 & 25 in Fresno, CA and honors the ongoing work of folklorico artists sharing culture and traditions across the United States and in Mexico. For more information, please visit www.danzantes.org . 

Congratulations to the nearly 1500 participants that have registered for workshops at DUF 2018!  With only a handful of open spots in adult classes, the event is pretty much sold out.  As always, we have kept the limit of dancers per class to 30 with the exception of the Master Classes, which are always larger and taught at a faster pace. CLICK HERE to see what spots are left.  Sadly, this also means that there will most likely NOT be any available spots for Onsite Registration.

DUF Registration would like to update all participants with the following teaching staff changes:

Many of us had the opportunity to hear Maestra Blanca Araceli Soto as the voice of “The Emcee” in Disney/Pixar’s film, “COCO”.  Sadly for us, her busy acting career will keep her from teaching the Dance Theater class this year.  All her students have been notified to arrange for transfer into other classes.  Still . . . Maestra Blanca WILL be with us “in spirit” as she introduces this year’s Showcase Concerts in prerecorded voice-over!  We are truly SPECIAL.  Gracias, Maestra!

Similarly, Maestros Cortez and Vasquez have work conflicts that will keep them from joining us.  Fortunately for us, we have two amazing Maestras coming in to replace them.  Please make note of the following:

Repertorio 3rd Grade (Beg/Int): Oaxaca, Veracruz, Yucatan –  Sam Cortez will now be . . .
Repertorio 3rd Grade (Beg/Int): Chiapas, Michoacan, Veracruz – Maria Valdovinos
. . . . . .
Folklorico Jr. High 6-8th Grade (Int): Coahuila & Veracruz – Martin Vasquez will now be . . .
Folklorico Jr. High 6-8th Grade (Int): Coahuila & Veracruz – Mariana Romo
. . . . .
AND, due to super-full classes for 4th and 5th graders, we have added a  class to accommodate this demographic–Repertorio NEW Class for Grades 4 & 5 Baja California Norte, Campeche & Sinaloa with Maestra Maria Cerda
. . . . .
Students from the two existing and super-full 4th Grade classes that wish to make the change to the new class must contact [email protected] immediately and only the first five students requesting this change from each class will be accepted within the next 48 hours.  Why is that?  Because we are sending your badges to print!
. . . . .
Late Registrants (and parents) can still order t-shirts via our DUF Tienda for a few more days.  There you will also find Pachanga tickets, the DUF Syllabus ““La Danza y el Traje en Mexico” Volumes I, II and III, by Dr. Maria Guadalupe Castro Paramo” AND tickets to attend the Piñata-making Workshop.
. . . . .
Showcase Concert tickets are available online at the Warnors Theater website.
. . . . .
Once again, thank you participants, directors, parents & chaperones for helping us to make this YOUR Danzantes Unidos.  We look forward to greeting you in Fresno!

DUF 2018 will take place on March 23-25  in Fresno, CA.
