Photography of Mexican Folkloric Dance
Ballet Folklorico (or baile folklórico in Spanish) is the traditional folk dance of Mexico. It is a colorful expression of Mexican culture and tradition. These photos show variations of Mexican folkloric dance costumes represented by different regions of Mexico including the States of Jalisco, Yucatan, Veracruz and Sinaloa. Mexican folk dancing, perfomed to the lively music of mariachi bands, shows the energy and motion of this unique dance style. Many of these pictures were taken during Hispanic celebrations in America. Mexican holidays like Cinco de Mayo and Fiestas Patrias offer opportunities for Mexican Americans and Latinos to celebrate their rich cultural heritage. Stock photography and fine art prints of these images are available.
