Perform a Mexican Hat Freeze Dance
If you’re throwing a party this Cinco de Mayo, be sure to include the Mexican Hat Dance! This popular folk dance was originally performed during a celebration commemorating the end of the Mexican Revolution. It has now become a symbol of national pride among Mexican people. Kids will squeal with delight as they work on their coordination, reflexes, and balance while they dance to “Jarabe Tapatio,” otherwise known as the Mexican Hat Dance Song.
What You Need:
- Sombrero or other large brimmed hat decorated to look like a sombrero
- A recording of the “Mexican Hat Dance” song
- Someone to play the music
