CUICACALLI “House of Culture" is a year-round youth training program, in association with DANCING EARTH, the nation’s foremost Indigenous contemporary dance ensemble (www.dancingearth.org). Founded in 2008 by renowned international performer Jesus “Jacoh” Cortes, CUICACALLI is an international, cross-cultural, dance-arts educational institution. CUICACALLI carries strongly its mission: to serve the diverse community of San Francisco with dedication towards excellent instruction, performances and community programs, for intergenerational students, artists and audiences of all backgrounds. CUICACALLI builds communities through dance - expanding, exploring and celebrating the cultural traditions of the Americas.  The offering of versatile dance styles give students a well-rounded curriculum of body awareness, movement dynamics, strength, flexibility, spatial composition, and the appreciation for the vibrant cultural rhythms that are the pulse of Latino/Indio life.

Students perform Mr. Cortes’ choreography at our popular “Tradicion, Movimiento y Pasion” concerts, held annually at the Brava Theater Center.  His students have also performed  for audience of thousands at the Carnaval Parade in San Francisco and  in annual presentations at Cesar Chavez Day. In 2010, CUICACALLI was joined by soloists of DANCING EARTH, receiving standing ovations from a sold out crowd (including Carlos Santana) at the Brava Theater’s community screening of the Peter Bratt film, LA MSSION.
