Santa Cruz Center for Culture
1805 E. Seventh, 512/478-9717
Performance venue which serves as the cultural arts anchor of the new "Olé Mexico!" revitalization district (East Sixth and Seventh streets). The cinder-block walls and school auditorium proscenium may at first promise a cool, sterile artistic experience, but just let it fill up with people; the community for whom this space is a bona fide center warms it up mighty fast and makes a catching a show here as lively as anywhere in town. Home base for the celebrated Aztlan Folk Dance Troupe and frequently the site of productions by Teatro Humanidad and Pro Arts Collective.
