Travel south of the border with Mixteco Ballet Folklórico! The group presents dances from the Northern state of Nuevo Leon, which were first brought to Mexico from European countries such as Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia.

 

In the state of Veracruz, the “Zapateados”, or footwork, are very intricate and reminiscent of the Flamenco dances from Spain. The group’s final numbers are from the state of Jalisco, where the Mariachi music is believed to have originated. The dynamic sounds of trumpets, violins and guitars come alive, as the dancers make their grand entrance.

Next, the Mexican cowboys known as “Charros” dance their way onto the stage, with their wide brimmed “sombreros”.

In closing the show, the group performs their final number, “The Jarabe Tapatío”, or better known around the world as The Mexican Hat Dance. ¡Víva México!
