This state is located to the southeast of Mexico. Yucatan is the cradle of the one culture that previously dominated all of Central America. When the costumes and the tradition of the natives of the region mixed with the Spaniards, a new style of posture, movement, and footwork were adapted in their dancing style. The influence of the Spanish Jota and Sarabanda are well noticed in the dances from this state. The dances of Yucatan have preserved the elegant dignity of early Spanish dance, but with an exotic flavor.
