An Interview With the Quinceanera Queen of Austin, Texas!

December 2, 2016 by Jason Alexander

For this week’s article, I interviewed Elba Diaz Patzelt, who is the owner and lead choreographer of QuinceMundo. Elba and her team provide dance choreography, instruction and preparation for Quinceañeras. They also provide Quinceañera event planning & coordination services for unique coming-of-age celebrations in the Austin, Texas area! Elba truly is the “Quinceanera Queen” because we’ve worked with her a few times and she is truly on top of her game and one of the best in the area! Here’s the interview, below.

Jason: “Please tell me a little about yourself and how QuinceMundo got started?”
Elba: “My name is Elba Diaz Patzelt and I’m the owner of QuinceMundo Events and Dance. I have over 20 years of experience as a Dance Instructor and Performer, and 15 years of experience as an event coordinator in the corporate arena. As a struggling student, I began teaching dance to Quinceaneras on an informal basis to help pay off college expenses and found myself being called back to serve many clients and loving my experiences with the youth as well as with helping the parents with the planning aspect of the events. In 2014, QuinceMundo Events was established and we hope to be in business for many years to come.”

Jason: “What is the average length of time that you work with your clients?”
Elba: “Our dance service clients typically work with us for 4 months before the Quince and our planning clients for 12 months leading up to the event.”

Jason: “What do you love most about what you do?”
Elba: “I believe in values-based education and teaching teens how to express themselves with confidence through dance. Working with the Quinceaneras and the young members of their court of honor, we are able to apply focus on how we treat the people and things we care about. We love watching our participants grow in a short span of time and look forward to experiencing their beautiful Quinceanera dance presentations that enable our Hispanic traditions to live on.”

If you’d like to get in touch with Elba and QuinceMundo Events, she highly recommends contacting them at least 6 months prior to your event for dance choreography services and 15 months prior for event planning services. Austin’s Best DJs has worked with Elba numerous times and we highly recommend her for Quinceaneras and events in the Austin and central Texas area! Here’s Elba’s contact info, below:
