About Puebla: The Story of Cinco de Mayo

An Educational Journey to “Puebla: The Story of Cinco de Mayo” tells a universal tale of the underdog fighting impossible odds designed specifically for students and teachers. The setting is the Battle of Puebla when a small army of Mexican soldiers and commoners defeated the French army, the strongest military force of the time, on the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), 1862. Through folkloric and contemporary dance, live music and elaborate costuming, Calpulli elaborates on the history of the now-famous date and celebrates the culture and people of Puebla.  More info:  calpullidance.org/
