Bottle dance "Baile de la botella"

The Bottle Dance" It is only performed by girls and is also somewhat of a holiday tradition. The dancers start out with one bottle balanced on their head as they dance. Then they begin adding more bottles one at a time. Depending on the experience of the dancer there may be more than ten bottles at a time.

  1. This dance seems extremely hard to do. I am curious as to what the significance of the bottles are and why it is a holiday tradtion. The dress she is wearing is beautiful.
