Mazatlán is a vacation destination that is always at the forefront of cultural tourism and they always support culture 100 percent, that’s why we are here, we said, surely we are going to feel pampered and that’s how it was, we are not wrong, said Mariela Guerrero.
Mariela is the coordinator of a group of majorettes from Durango that performed last weekend at the Parque de las Ciudads Hermanas as part of the cultural program “Sin límites… el arte el movimiento” [without limits… art, movement], presented by the House of Cultura of Durango with support of the Instituto de Cultura, Turismo y Arte de Mazatlán.
The intention of the event was to promote the art and culture of Durango and generate collaborative ties between this destination and Mazatlán to promote artistic work between both cities.
Around 70 people from Durango with different abilities participated in this event who shared their talent through Painting, Sculpture and Dance.
During the opening ceremony, the local authorities were thanked, mainly Mayor Edgar González Zatarain and CULTURA Mazatlán for supporting this presentation.

28 paintings were exhibited on which the creative process of the artists with different abilities worked six months; some of them paint with their mouths due to their paraplegic condition.
In turn, the group of majorettes presented Latin rhythms such as Hip-Hop and reggaeton, a Disney special and modern dance choreographies.
