The art of Mexican dance


Mexico has a rich culture, from its art to its music and delicious food. But the picture wouldn’t  be compete without Mexican dance. Its an art that spreads its wings in every direction, from classical Spanish dances to the lovely folk dances of the campesinos to dramatic performances portraying Mexico’s history.

On a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta, I had a chance to see a night of Mexican dance by a local troupe, and took some photos that capture some of the colour and drama that make it one of the country’s most famous arts. Here is a gallery of photos.

    Gorgeous! I love the way you caught the movement in the costumes and kept the dancers’ glowing faces clear.
