And now, in the company’s latest creation, “Navidad: A Mexican-American Christmas,” set for a two-week run at Thalia Hispanic Theatre in Sunnyside beginning Nov. 30, the two worlds come together.

The piece, developed by Castaño and his artistic partner, Alberto Lopez Herrera, celebrates holiday traditions experienced by a child of Mexican immigrant parents while growing up in New York City.

“The idea is to use dance to say, ‘We’re here and we deserve to be celebrated,’” Castano said. “We think of our work as something beautiful, something celebratory.”
