Today’s post is about Mexicans and DANCING !! So grab your partner! Cuz it’s the weekend & it’s time to unwind & have some fun! In my last post I wrote about how George Lopez once dissed his own people & culture saying that Mexicans really can’t dance, and that the only dance they have is around a hat. As I said before, Au contrare pally! Mexicans love to dance & Mexico has lot’s of popular dances that are not folkloric. Dancing is HUGE with Mexicans, it’s a very popular pass time that’s near & dear for both native Mexicans , Mexican Americans, and all Mexicans abroad. Mexicans love dancing and are proud of the dancing styles that come from Mexico. Many young kids would rather go to clubs that play traditional and modern Mexican dance music instead of going to regular clubs that just play pop, techno, & hip hop. For some people dancing is like more than just a pass time, it’s an obsession. They go dancing religiously, take classes, enter competitions, and form clubs. Some girls are so into dancing that they refuse to date guys who don’t dance. And it’s not only the young kids either, many parents love to dance at family parties or still make time to go out dancing during their free time. Being Friday night, I bet there’s a bunch of people going out to dance tonight just like in these videos. Hope they have a blast, those crazy kids =) Later on I’d like to post more info about the different types of Mexican dances, but today I wanna share some simple videos. Today’s dance rhythm is = Mexican Cumbias
A group of young Mexicans who participated in a Cumbia exhibition that took place in France =) Yay way to represent guys!!
A Mexican young man teaching a Ukrainian young lady how dance Cumbia.
The vid description on this one said, “Me & my girlfriend. It was raining , couldn’t go out, and so we decided to dance.” They really used their indoor time wisely lol they recorded and posted more vids of different Mex dance styles they had fun with that day. oh that will come in handy =) Anyway I like this couple, good synergy.
