“How often do you get to watch a documentary [such as "Dancing from the Heart"], see the living people perform, ask them questions, and chat informally with them, all in the same evening?”(Rio Grande Sun, August 4, 2005)

That is the idea of the Tewa Dancers Live and on Film package, with Andrew Garcia as lead singer and drummer and 2 to 10 dancers. In addition, Andrew Garcia is available to teach traditional Pueblo social dances and to speak. He is a veteran in all these matters.

In a spirited event, Garcia and his dancers, along with the film "Dancing from the Heart," appeared at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe in August 2005. The film was preceded by the live performance in front of the Museum, in the dance circle of Milner Plaza, and later Garcia and the dancers took part in an animated question and answer session and a post-film reception.

Recently, "Dancing from the Heart" screened for the Youth Interns and public at the Explora Children's Museum in Albuquerque, NM, as a part of the nationwide KIDS FIRST! Film and Video Festival. Andrew Garcia and Marilyn Hunt took part in a lively exchange with the young people.

In mid-July 2006, "Dancing from the Heart" was shown in tandem with appearances by Andrew Garcia and dancers and Marilyn Hunt at the Living Ritual: World Indigenous Dance Festival in Toronto. See News.
