Ballet Folklorico Tradiciones and more at Incanto Puerto Vallarta
Perro Bravo Productions recently returned to Vallarta with sold-out opening performances of the critically acclaimed stage comedy, “Princesas Desesperadas”. Performing the Spanish adapted version of Tomas Ustusastegui’s comedy, the play is directed by Ramiro Daniel and stars award-winning actors Juan Pablo Hernandez, Juan Carlos Ramirez, Cesar Trujillo, and Cesar Bravo. It’s a fast-paced comedy that tells the hilarious story of four Disney Princesses fifteen years after their “happily ever afters”. Next performances August 4 & 5 and September 1 & 2 at 8:30pm in the cabaret. Advance reservations are recommended.
Celebrating their one year anniversary, Ballet Folklórico Tradiciones features traditional dances of Mexico. They will perform the ‘Dance of the Machetes’ from Nayarit and as the Charros and ladies of Jalisco, among several others. The group was founded in 2016 by Director and Choreographer Alexis Guadalupe Jimon Garcia. Adults and youngsters between the ages of 6 and 14 will perform. They have been invited to represent Mexico and the state of Jalisco in Shanghai, China at an International Folk Art Festival in September. Performances are August 18 & 19 at 7pm.
