Traditional Mexican Dances You Should Know About

Traditional and folkloric dances are hugely popular in Mexico | Courtesy of @ Richard Ellis / Alamy

Lauren Cocking

Northern England Writer17 March 2021

Traditional Mexican dances merge the country’s indigenous, African and European influences. The Spanish were unsuccessful in trying to suppress indigenous dance during colonial times; instead, Spanish culture became part of the routines. Styles such as folklorico and jarabe have become a celebrated part of Mexico’s national identity, with dedicated troupes, such as the Ballet Folklorico, performing them.

We’re kicking off with what is easily the most internationally well known, and arguably the most patriotic, of all of Mexico’s traditional dances – the Jarabe Tapatío. Typically referred to as the Mexican Hat Dance in English – at one point the steps revolve around a sombrero placed on the floor – Mexico’s national dance is intricately linked with its pride as a nation. One aspect that possibly aids the enduring popularity of this courtship dance (aside from ballerina Anna Pavlova’s en pointe version) is the distinctly Mexican clothing; the male dancer wears a charro suit and the female dancer a china poblana dress.

La Conquista (the Conquest) is a traditional Mexican dance that, as the name suggests, narrates the story of the Spanish conquest. Masked dancers play all the key historical players, from the conquistador Hernán Cortés and La Malinche, a Nahua woman who acted as his interpreter and adviser, to the Aztec ruler Moctezuma. The dance depicts the death of the latter at the hands of the former. It’s particularly popular in the western states of Michoacán and Jalisco, and although it’s not an indigenous dance, the tragic story it depicts is vital in terms of Mexican history, including the story of those who were here before the European arrival.

Popular in the state of Michoacán is the Danza de los Viejitos (Dance of the Little Old Men). Technically, this dance was created and popularised in the 20th century, but its roots and rhythm are rooted firmly in traditional folk dance. The four old men in question represent earth, air, fire and water. This dance is notable for the wooden shoes worn by the dancers, which certainly make each step they take that much more impactful. Traditional instruments and indigenous clothing are also featured in the dance, which often finds itself compared to a similar dance known as Huehuenches or Huehues.

Another of Mexico’s ritualistic dances is the Danza del Venado (Deer Dance), which depicts the story of a deer hunt and is typically performed in springtime. Originating in the Yaqui regions of Sonora and Sinaloa, renditions of this practically unchanged dance are now performed across the country and even in parts of the USA. The great thing about the dance is that it’s instantly identifiable, as the dancers wear real or imitation antlers with red ribbon accents on their heads.

Another iconic dance is Los Voladores de Papantla, considered by Unesco a symbol of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Prepare to be terrified, however, because the event begins with all five participants scaling a 30m (98ft) pole, from which four of them then proceed to drop – one lucky member remains at the top playing a flute and drum. Attached only by a rope, they gently twirl and spin, and then gracefully make their way to the ground.

Featuring dancers dressed in indigenous costume, including headdresses and body paint, Concheros (Shells) is predominantly an indigenous dance. Although there’s some European influence here in the form of armadillo shell lutes, the other instruments that accompany it, such as the drums and flutes, are more authentic. You might hear Concheros referred to as the Chichimecas or Aztecas, and there is also a version called the Mexicas, which seeks to get back to the indigenous roots of the dance.

A dance that is key to understanding Mexico’s often sidelined African heritage is the Guerrero/Oaxaca-based Danza de los Diablos. Originally developed during the colonial period, during which the Spanish brought enslaved Africans to the coasts of Mexico, the dance features characteristics unique to the region. All the participants wear similar masks and dress, with the exception of the dancer interpreting the role of the main devil, who has more elegant attire. The dance is often performed on the Day of the Dead, and its movements are said to symbolise the breaking away of the Africans from the Spanish slave owners.

This dance is particularly popular and is performed all over the north of the country, particularly in Zacatecas. Matlachines is especially known for the colourful outfits the dancers wear, including chicken feather headdresses, usually dyed to match the colours of the Mexican flag, and, as with the Danza de los Viejitos, wood-soled shoes that help emphasise the sound of each step. Although Tlaxcala sometimes lays claim to Matlachines, it’s generally accepted that the dance originated in Aguascalientes.

One of the few entirely non-indigenous dances included in this guide is the so-called Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians) dance. First introduced by monks, the dance is now typically included as part of a larger festival that includes other elements such as mock battles. The festivals represent the capturing of Spanish towns and cities by the Moors and the reconquering by the local Christian population, and are mainly held in Valencia in southern Spain. All participants, whether they are playing Moors or Christians, wear capes and masks depicting their allegiances.

Now considered a symbol of the state of Morelos, although it was originally practised during carnival celebrations in the south of Mexico City and the State of Mexico, this dance pokes fun at the Spanish. The dancers disguise themselves (the word chinelos is thought to have come from the Nahuatl for “disguised”) and take on the roles of the Spanish, imitating their elaborate dress, as well as their fair colouring. The mask-wearing and role-reversal permitted at carnivals allowed for the mockery of Europeans, even in colonial times.

What is Tribal? Tribal is… Training schedule.

Tribal - dance direction , authored by Carolina Nericchio , based on improvisation and group interaction .

Karolina Nericchio studied dance with Masha Archer in the 70s of the last century for 14 years. Later, she created her own dance group and tribal style by borrowing 9 from her teacher.0003 the concept of a tribal dance, when dancers from the choir spontaneously come to the center to perform a dance , as well as uniformity of costumes . Music was used mainly by ethnic peoples of North Africa and Central Asia.

The result is a dance style that combines oriental belly dance, traditional Indian dances and Spanish flamenco . The difference between tribal and other common dances is group synchronized improvisation . From the standing choir , groups of dancers spontaneously form - 2-4 people who go to the center and dance in sync, while improvising . The combination of improvisation and synchronicity is achieved through the existing vocabulary of movements and rebuildings , which each participant knows, and constant non-verbal communication between the speakers, with the help of conventional signs . For an inexperienced viewer, the tribal looks like as staging .

There are many varieties of tribal , for example, tribal fusion, when the performer expresses herself, d adding to the tribal movements the style of dances close to it. At the same time, along with group improvisation, individual improvisation is also used.

There is also a separate type of improvisational tribal , in which each team of performers develops their own vocabulary of movements , rules of rebuilding and means of non-verbal communication. As a result dancers can only improvise within their group.

Unlike other dance styles, competitions are not welcome in tribal , because it is believed that they lead to disunity and stereotypes.

If the tribal is decomposed into components, then the following key components that form a single system can be distinguished:

  • Uniform tribal terminology , which is used in all dance groups of this style;
  • key-hint system, which are movements imperceptible to the viewer, with the help of which the dancers communicate with each other during the dance, warning each other about further movements so as not to lose synchrony;
  • Group builds and rebuilds ;
  • Music theory improvisation.
  • Having mastered this toolkit, tribal dancers can create dances right during the performance, without memorizing them in advance, but communicating with each other through dance language.

    Thus, tribal is not so much a dance as a show, as a group practice , including attention and reaction game , non-verbal communication training and self-disclosure, through improvisation in dance.

    Due to the versatility of the tribal and the single base of movements, it can be danced by people who are see each other for the first time and even speak different languages ​​ .

    In Russia tribal fun appeared relatively recently , but has already managed to gain popularity: today there are groups developing this dance direction in almost every major city . At the same time, there is a shortage of qualified teachers , which is why the quality of tribal in Russia is still somewhat behind the world.

    In conclusion, it must be said that although training in tribal takes time and effort, but for this the practitioner will be rewarded with the opportunity to truly dance with other dancers from different countries, and find self-expression through improvisation in dance.

    Mexican dance "Voladores" - Mexican culture

    Perhaps one of the most impressive among the many national dances in Mexico are the dances "Voladores" and "Guaguas". And because they combine elements of an acrobatic show and require special equipment, and because they are colorful and have a deep meaning, rooted in the Indian traditions of pre-Hispanic Mexico. These are indeed very ancient dances that were previously performed as rituals. Dances may have existed as early as 1200 AD. Today they are very popular in the Papantla region, the state of Veracruz, as well as in the states of Puebla, Hidalgo and San Luis Potosi.

    Both dances are impressive in their performance and use rotating mechanisms made of wood. In the dance "Voladores" ("Flyers"), rotation is carried out in a horizontal plane, and in "Guaguas" - in a vertical one. The use of mechanisms carries a certain risk for the dancers, but it is extremely spectacular for the audience. There is evidence that these dances existed during the Toltec period, and with them they spread to Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador. Both dances are closely connected with the cult of the fertility gods Xipe-Totec and Tlazolteotl.

    Both dances came from very ancient ceremonies and were not just entertainment. In the Papantla region, performers say that "Voladores" is a greeting to the Sun Father and a request for rain, while "Gua Gua" symbolizes gratitude for the gifts received. Therefore, when both dances are performed in the same place, "Voladores" is performed first.

    The use of rotary mechanisms from wood has its own characteristics. For "Voladores" a pole is used, and for "Guaguas" a cross or mill is used. In the past, Voladores performers used a pole high enough to reach the ground in 13 revolutions around the pole. Multiplying 13 by 4 (the number of dancers), we get 52 - an extremely important number in calendar symbolism, denoting Shiumolpilli, or the 52-year cycle of the Indian calendar. The rotation of the mechanism in the dances personified the movement of the Sun, which the participants of the ceremony greet with their music and dance movements. Researchers believe that the combination of symbolic elements was achieved in the Aztec era, which gravitated toward spectacle: music as an offering to the gods, a dangerous dance on top of a pillar, four dancers instead of two, the position of the performers upside down and with outstretched arms, and, of course, brightly colored costumes. birds associated with the sun: macaws, quetzals, eagles and larks.

    The fertility symbolism of both dances is expressed in the aspiration of the dancers to the ground from the height of a pillar, like falling raindrops.

    In the era of the Conquest, dances persist despite the attempts of missionaries to eradicate them. An Inquisition document has been published recommending a ban on the Voladores dance. In some regions the ban did not work, in others it was successful, and these dances disappeared for a while. But since the tradition had deep roots, they reappeared and are still being performed.

    For the Voladores dance, a pole is used, made from a tree trunk, which must be cut down and “planted”, that is, dug in. All these actions are accompanied by ceremonies. Only three local breeds are suitable for the ritual. The tree must be relatively tall (up to 40 m) and straight, and its wood must be strong enough to support both the rotating mechanism and the weight of the performers.

    The dancers who prepare the tree-cutting ceremony must observe strict sexual abstinence, just as was done in pre-Hispanic times. Each stage of the cutting, dragging and digging ceremony is accompanied by music played by the "foreman" on his sedge flute, called "puskol", beating the rhythm on a small drum "litlackni". First, the participants ask for forgiveness from the owner of the forest - the god Kiguikolo. They offer the god a ritual treat, cane alcohol and cigarettes. Before cutting, the participants of the ceremony dance around the tree, starting from the east side. Each of them stands in a certain place strictly on the cardinal points. The tree trunk at the same time personifies the center of the universe.

    The “foreman” starts cutting the tree, making the first blows with an ax, followed by each of the four dancers, and the inhabitants of the village who have gathered for the ceremony finish. The felled tree is stripped of branches and bark and rolled over the ground on rollers made from branches. Today, a tractor is used for this, but in the old days, the pole was carried so that it did not touch the ground. Previously, they also chose a person who had to spend the night with a cut down tree so that it would not feel lonely.

    The trunk is dressed, that is, tied with woven vines or ropes that will serve as a ladder, the upper part is prepared to fix the “apple” (a coil that rotates a wooden square frame) on it and a pictla, a small wooden plank, is installed on which the dancers place their feet in a seated position on top of the pole and from which they push off to spin the frame.

    When the pole pit is ready, an offering of tamales, cane alcohol and live chicken or chicken eggs is placed on the bottom of the pit. All this is done to the sound of flute and drum. This is a request for forgiveness to protect the dancers from possible accidents.

    As soon as the pole is raised and dug into the ground, a rotary mechanism is installed on it and ropes are tied. Now the pillar is finally ready for the dance.

    Today, metal poles are often used, so many elements of the ritual are reduced.

    Before climbing the pole, the performers dance around to the sound of traditional melodies. First, four dancers rise, and the last is the "foreman" or musician. The “Chief” is also called the flyer because he can stand on top and perform a very risky dance on a very small surface of the reel without any safety devices.

    Playing his instruments, the "foreman" beats the rhythm and moves, bowing to all four directions of the world, while standing on one leg. Then he sits on the coil and leans back, remaining on his back facing the sun, to which he dedicates a special song. He speeds up the rhythm, signaling the beginning of the ritual. Four dancers seated at the corners of a square frame lean back and begin to spin the frame. Having descended from it, they spin around the pillar slowly and solemnly, head down, with outstretched arms and legs crossed on the rope that supports them. The sounds of the flute and drum fill everything around, creating a special background for this ceremony. If the audience shows admiration, one of the dancers may arch in the air and touch their legs with their hands. This position requires great effort and can only be used for a short moment.

    As the ropes unwind, the circles described by the dancers get wider and wider. When the dancers can already touch the ground with their hands, they do a somersault in the air, stand on their feet and complete their ritual by running in a circle. The "foreman" descends one of the ropes, which are held taut by four dancers.
