Awal Dancers / Baile Folklorico de Guatemala

 

Group Awal is a folk dance group, which aims to raise awareness of the Mayan culture of Guatemala, in their dances, costumes, and customs. The group was started by two ladies of the group, Julia Sanchez and Luisa Lopez, in 2005. "Awal" comes from the Maya language MAM which means in Spanish "The Sower" and the primary purpose is to assess and grow the culture for our youth and children, so that we can continue to reap cultural values.
