Information on Traditional Mexican Dance Costumes

Since Mexico is very diverse country with rich and colorful culture, it is almost impossible to number all dance costumes that are used in Mexico.

The reason for this is that there are 32 Mexican States and each state has its own and unique dances, and of course dancing costumes as well. It is for this reason that this article is written in the form of the overview, rather than as a list of the Mexican dance costumes.

If we were to blend in all traditional dance costumes, used in Mexico, we would get the average male and female Mexican costumes.

Traditional Female Mexican Dance Costume

The most important part of the female Mexican dance costume is a dress. The dance dress can be short, but for the most part it is a long, wide and very colorful, living everything, or almost everything, to the imagination.

The Mexican dance dress is usually very colorful. The favorite Mexican colors are red, green and white (which are also the colors of the Mexican flag). Of course there are Mexican dance dresses in other colors than these three, such as blue or yellow.

Another very important part of the Mexican female dance costume is dancing shoes. The Mexican dance shoes are, for the most part, black, red or white and with low heel. High heel shoes are used rarely and only for certain dances.
