The Spanish brought with them all aspects of their culture including dance. Local people created their own adaptations of these dances including jotas, fandanggos, mazurkas and waltzes that were danced by young socialites to the stringed music of the rondalla.
This discussion of Spanish Colonial dance will also feature performances by a lively troupe of accomplished dancers.
Tickets are $10, free for members of El Rancho de Las Golondrinas or Museum of New Mexico Foundation. Doors open at 5:15 PM.
