A Colorful Display of Mexican Culture
Ballet Folklórico, which means “folkloric dance” in Spanish, is a beautiful, colorful, and animated dance representing the Hispanic culture and folklore. Women wear ruffled and long brightly-colored dresses while the men wear traditional suits with embroidered designs along the legs of the pants and on the short jackets. The men also wear large sombreros which coordinate with the color of the suit. Carefully choreographed dance steps allow the flowing skirts of the female dancers to swirl around giving a vision of bright colors traveling across the stage. The music and dance together represent several regions and traditions of Mexico.
