Look at my most recent date(s)! LOL! Just kidding! These really are not people I dated. They are also not contacts I met from online. These are two of the Aztec Dancers I met when I attended the All Nations Tribal Pow Wow this weekend in a city nearby.
These men were amazing! (Oh, I could go so many places with that, but no, I’m going to play this one straight.) There were 5 of them in the group; one drummer, four dancers. These two ictured were dancers. They were in incredible shape and they danced constantly for thirty minutes. If you’ve ever seen anything like this you know that this kind of dancing is very physically active and strenuous (again, the places I could go…but…I’m containing myself here).
The headdresses were easily three feet across and just as tall. Every one of the men had different regalia on (don’t call them costumes…they are not costumes!). Anyway, I’m including a video, which is not the video of the group I saw, but it is the most similar to the dancing I saw including the lighting of the fire at the beginning and the positions (Hee!hee! Okay, I won’t go there) of the dancers. The dancers I saw were much more precise in their movements and much more energetic as well. 😉 Enjoy!

Great pic! The dancers are attractive, but well, aw shucks …
Wish I’d been there.
What? You wanted to dance with the dancers? Now that’d be somethin’ to see. 🙂
I would have preferred dancing with someone not quite so heavily made up, and far more attractive than Chief Wild Eagle and Crazy Cat.
(No disrespect to our Aztec friends intended; I’m thinking guys like that have gotta have a sense of humor.)
Nice video, but those guys need a bass player and guitarist. Then they could really rock.
