11 Things Folklorico Dancers Do Without Thinking

Folklorico dancers are creatures of habit!  Most of us rehearse and perform almost on a daily basis, and that's probably why we end up doing a few things that are pretty unique, to say the least.  Below are 11 things that we do almost every day of our lives without thinking.

#1 Walk to the beat. 

#2 Practice our zapateado every chance we get and everywhere we go. 

#3 Choreograph folklorico dances in our head.

#4 Smile automatically, even when we're not performing.

#5 Practice "Air Faldeo" with our invisible faldas. 

#6 Hoard anything that can be re-purposed as a folklorico costume or garment. 

#7 Analyze every folklorico dance we see on stage or in videos. 

#8 Talk with our hands.

#9 Start dancing every time we hear mariachi music.

#10 Strike a pose.

#11 Choose Folklorico over everything. 

That's all folks! I hope you enjoyed this post. 

See you next time!
