George and Catherine Cisneros, founders of URBAN-15, share their passion for dance and traditional music as we approach Day of the Dead

SAN ANTONIO – Founders Catherine and George Cisneros share their passion for honoring the faithfully departed on Day of the Dead.

“For us, dance and music is a form of meditation and expression, a moment of reflection,” Catherine Cisneros said.

Since the 1970s the performers have dedicated their traditional dances for Day of the Dead. This year, as we continue to battle a pandemic, they hope to give their performance as a gift to all families impacted.

“We dedicate all of our work to all of those who have been victims,” George Cisneros said.
