Happy Dies y Seis de Septembre! Happy Mexican Independence Day!  This is the date Mexico celebrates as it’s Independence Day.  And much like our own American Independence Day, there are thousands of celebrations, parties and festivals to enjoy.

Ballet Folklorico dresses are beautiful, colorful and lots of fun to wear to anything from a costume party to a dance festival.  Having a parade?  Dress up in one of these gorgeous costumes and join in the fun.

Actually, Ballet Folklorico is the name of  a dance group in Mexico started in the 1950’s.  The group presented beautiful traditional dances representing different regions of Mexico.  There’s history, romance, rich color, tradition and remembrance all wrapped into the dance groups that evolved  to the folk dances now recognized worldwide.

Enjoy celebrating el Dies y Seis (the 16th) by wearing a colorful ballet folklorico costume.  Or have a Mexican Independence Day party and have everyone wear costumes.  OR, enjoy these ballet folklorico dresses for Halloween or dia de los muertos.

Mexican Folk Dance Dresses

Mexican Jalisco Folklorico Dress Multiple Sizes/Colors

You’ve seen those stunning Mexican folk dance dresses with the super wide skirts and bright colors?  If you haven’t, you’re missing a real treat.

The most famous of these dance dresses are the Jalisco (a state in Mexico) folklorico dress. There are dance costumes representing different regions in Mexico, not to mention different peoples.

I think the reason they are so recognizable is because they’re so full of color.  The gloriously wide skirt helps too.

The folklorico dance dresses are usually a blouse top and the skirt bottom.  You can add ruffly underskirts and/or bloomers for extra effect.

The beauty is in the embroidery and satin ribbons that decorate the dresses.
