We came to the Teatro Degollado to see the Ballet Folclórico de la Universidad de Guadalajara. The group is celebrating its 50th year of performing and is widely considered to be the best folkloric group in Mexico. The dancers and singers are mostly university students, directed and supported by faculty. Folclórico is all about traditional music, stories, dance, instruments and costumes. It's a way of preserving culture and passing it on to the future. Like many other folkloric presentations, the Ballet Folclórico of the University of Guadalajara features different regions of Mexico, climaxing with the State of Jalisco, of which Guadalajara is the capital. Jalisco is the mega-hit producer of most of the music and dance the world thinks of as 'Mexican'. In fact, the local people, or Tapatíos, consider Jalisco to be synonymous with Mexico, thus the slogan you see everywhere: 'Jalisco IS Mexico'. Not sure how the other regions feel about that. In terms of mega-hits, the biggest must be the Mexican Hat Dance, really called the Jarabe Tapatío. A jarabe (or mixture) is a dance with a medley of catchy tunes from different areas. During the early years of Mexican independence, it was a way of unifying the country. In the case of the Jarabe Tapatío, it also happens to be a pretty intense courtship dance. Other traditional mega-hits are 'la Son de la Negra' and 'Guadalajara'. Here is the Jarabe Tapatío, which may sound familiar: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-x0vKSO29N4 And El Son de la Negra: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZHngGx9oss Like most theaters, photography is not allowed during performances at the Teatro Degollado. Happily, you can get a taste of the Ballet Folclórico of the University of Guadalajara on the tube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZhiFuw3kEA www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAY4yqN0CrU Here is the link to the Ballet Folclórico de la Universidad de Guadalajara website: balletfolcloricoudg.mx/index.php
