Dances and Masks

Many kinds of dances, in most cases with the participants wearing masks, can still be seen today in small towns and villages. The dance of the old men ('viejitos') is native to the region of lake Patzcuaro in Michoacan, Mexico. It is a humorous dance with young men or boys disguised as old men, wearing wooden masks.
