Voladores - Dance of the Guaguas

Biography

This dance belongs to the genre of dances of flight, and is of pre-Hispanic origin. There is an exuberant, joyful moment when the four dancers, lured by the flute and drum of the Caporal, twirl in the air while tied to the blades of a windmill made of wood following traditional technique.
