Tutorial: "El Son de La Negra"


Hello Dancers!  

Have any of you ever wanted to learn how to dance the famous "Son de La Negra?" As a serious folklorico dancer, it is your obligation to master this dance because it is often referred to as "the second national anthem of Mexico 🇲🇽 ."

In the first tutorial video below, I have given you a guide to the Zapateado (footwork) that is in this dance. I have also given you links to videos where I have broken down the steps even further.  In the second video I have given you the complete routine with counts and a demonstration of the entire dance with music.
