Popular Danzón Event to Celebrate Tenth Anniversary at Plaza Cívica

By Leonardo Rosen

In November 2017, I felt that I had to break with the previous city administration and move our danzón dance event, “El Danzón y Otros Ritmos Bailables con el Club de Danzón Mercerina,” from the Jardín Principal to the El Sindicato community arts center. Since that institution has treated me with friendship and respect, I will continue to do events there. However, the Honorable Verónica Agundis, Síndico Municipal (something like “deputy mayor”), called me to a meeting in her office, where I met the new Director of Culture and Traditions Paulina Cadena. The outcome was very positive, for which I am grateful to these two officials and to Mayor Luis Alberto Villarreal.

Thus, we are scheduled for an event on Sunday, November 25, in the Plaza Cívica which celebrates two milestones:


The designation of San Miguel de Allende as an American Capital of Culture for 2019

The tenth anniversary of “El Danzón y Otros Ritmos Bailables.” This is months late, but we are happy that it is happening! [MA1]

The city government wants to expand events to other public plazas besides the Jardín. For this reason, our event on Sunday, November 25 takes place in the Plaza Cívica, just a few short blocks from the Jardín, and just as easy to find. The event will take place from 4:30–7pm. There is recorded dance music from 4:30pm to 5:30pm, and live music from 5:30–7:30pm. We hope to have the popular marimba orchestra Tono 13 performing.

Admission is free. For information, please call 415 121 4319 (the Culture and Traditions Department) or 415 154 5840 (Leo, “El Brujo del Danzón”).

Our most important ingredient for success is you. Please remember that you are the stars of this show. ¡”Danzonson”!
