Folk Dancing

Mexico is a nation -comprised of more than 30 states- that can be divided up into regions based on unique folk dance styles, music and costumes. Mexican folk dances are visually dramatic and engaging, and they very often tell a story about what it was like to live in Mexico at a given time in the past.

With energy, authentic costumes and versatility, the Omeyocan Dance Company performs a variety of Mexican folk dances from the states of Baja California, Chiapas, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacan, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa, Sonora, and Veracruz.

The Deer Dance, or La Danza del Venado, is a native Yaqui Dance from the northern Mexican state of Sonora. Their traditional territory continues into southern Arizona following the Sonoran desert. Dancers reenact a dramatic deer hunt to honor the natural world and the white tail deer, both who provide for most all the Yaqui’s needs.
