Día de los Muertos

Danza de los Viejitos en el Festival Alegría Purépecha 2017

La Danza de los Viejitos, which can be translated as The Dance of the Little Old Men, is traditionally performed by young men dressed as a group of elderly men. The performers will move about as though they are old and frail until suddenly bursting into energetic dance. (Tiempo de Michoacan 2017)
