As a half-Mexican woman, I often get told “you don’t look Mexican,” yet, regardless of how I look, my Mexican heritage heavily influences my life. I embrace it and love to show others the beauty in Mexican culture. There is a lack of awareness of what Ballet Folklórico is and what it represents. Each dance comes from a specific place in Mexico and represents religious traditions or celebrations. This series of photos shows the diversity within Ballet Folklórico and the many different emotions, traditional dresses and skirt work associated with the different states or regions in Mexico.
