Passengers and guests at San Diego International Airport were treated to a special folk dance performance today in Terminal 2 in honor of Cinco de Mayo. I caught the show on my lunch break and it was fantastic!
Traditional Mexican dances were performed by a talented young group of performers from Tijuana called Ballet Folklórico Toltecatl. As you can see from the slideshow, the dancers wore beautiful authentic costumes representing different regions of Mexico.
My favorite part of the performance was the mariachi-style dance that originated in the Mexican state of Jalisco. This vibrant dance involved a lot of fancy footwork with heels stomping in synchronization with the musical beats. It was magnificent!
By the way, you can see pictures of last year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration at the airport; notice how the outfits this year changed.
