Centro Cultural de Brazoria County was founded in November 1996. Our mission is to ensure the preservation of our Mexican heritage and culture by way of learning and performing traditional Mexican dance from as many regions of Mexico, to strive to keep our children away from drugs and gangs and to help them stay in school and maintain our American patriotism as well as learn of their rich heritage and assist them in achieving the goals as Mexican Americans. Our first performances consisted of Jalisco dances, we are now able to bring to our community and friends some costumes and dance from Jalisco, Vera Cruz, Nuevo Leon,Sinaloa, Tamualipas, San Luis Potosi Huasteca ,Guerrero, Michoacan and La Revolucion. We are currently getting ready to perform a very indigenous dance for Our lady of Guadalupe -Matachines, Los Concheros using Cascabeles. For our Annual 16 de septiembre 2001 we will be performing several Flamenco dances in honor of our Spanish heritage. Our people have inherited many cultures but primarily Mexican Indian, Spanish and French. We are a very proud people with a firm belief in dignity and Christian faith. Las Posadas is being learned by our members and at Christmas time (Navidad) we all get together and make tamales. We all share in making the Tamales so that our children do not forget our traditional foods and celebrations. We instill in our children the spirit of the Epiphany which is celebrated on January 6. We will get together and give thanks to God . We are going to publish an annual brochure explaing the history of our group and with many of our traditions, recipes and photos. This will enlighten and delight you. For more information or to sponsor this brochure with your business ads please call Maria Del Socorro Anderson at 281-331-1013.
