El Baile


El baile “Flor de Piña

During the month of December, often there are performances by school and university groups on stages in the Zocalo or on Cinco de Mayo and Constitución where these performances took place last week.  The first four pictures are of the dance "Flor de Pina", the dance that represents the region of San Juan Bautista Tuxtepec in the celebrations of the Guelaguetza.  Particularly noteworthy is the age of the band which you can see in the 4th from the last picture.  They appear to be middle school age.  Due to the strong frontal stage lights and only having a pocket camera at the time I have turned them into faux paintings.  A few are in larger format.  If you like you can visit my Picasa Web Album where you can use the magnifying glass icon to enlarge them or view them as a slideshow.
