Bailadoras Foclóricas / Folkloric Dancers
About the Painting
“Folkloric Dancing” is traditional Mexican folk dances performed by troupes of costumed dancers. It's a defining element of Mexico's popular culture, both nationally and internationally.
The concept of a folk dance troupe was formalised with the creation of the Ballet Folklórico de Mexico in 1952. Since then, most states, and many large urban centres, have their own troupes. A troupe usually consists of twenty to forty dancers, a mariachi band, and, possibly, other musicians.
Garr was inspired to capture a pair of dancers from a troupe, featuring the folkloric dance costumes typical of the Mexican state of Jalisco.
As you look at this digital painting, imagine their flowing, swirling multi-coloured skirts, their stomping feet, and the swaying sounds and rhythms of the Mariachi players.
