Cindy Renteria, senior communications major, is an Aztec dancer at heart. While growing up she was actively involved in Aztec dance and feels a spiritual connection to it, she said.

Renteria has given various presentations throughout the years alongside her family, and has learned a lot about herself through the dance, she said.

She spends her time teaching other students how to Aztec dance and is welcoming anyone who is interested in learning with open arms. Renteria doesn’t plan to leave Chico without teaching others the beauty and meaning behind Aztec dancing.

“The doors are always open for people to learn, you don’t have to be Mexican or Hispanic to join,” Renteria said.
