Mexican Hat DanceThe National Dance of Mexico

The great representative of Mexican passion and enjoyment of music, dance and other positive things in life is the national Mexican dancethe Jarabe Tapatio.

This dance is about love, passion, courtship, and sweet love drama that takes place between two people that are in love.

In the beginning of the dance the men does his best to impress the beautiful woman he is crazy about. He does this by stamping and tamping like never before and his body language that is showing his strength and self-confidence.

Of course in the very beginning he has little success and the lady is not really interested. However after he had shown that he really cares about her she is convinced that he is the one.

Unfortunately, (he being the man) just as he impressed her he becomes arrogant and possessed by the glory. The lady doesnt appreciate this and lets him know by distancing herself and scolding him.

This makes him think and realize that he had made a mistake and ultimately wins the ladys heart. Sounds familiar?

When Mexican Hat Dance was proclaimed by the Mexican Secretary of Education as the National Dance of Mexico the conservative Mexican political parties as well as the Catholic Church were very opposed to it.

They saw this dance as something shameful and too explicit. However the Mexican people saw nothing bad and evil about their national dance and they enjoy it ever since.

The very fact that this dance became the national dance of Mexico in 1924 is the best evidence of Mexican passion and pro-life orientation. Especially if you take into account that Mexico was and still is very religious country and that more than 90% of Mexicans is Roman Catholic.

There is nothing else to say but:

Viva Mexico!
