Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of the dead. No true celebration is complete without  dancing. At Day of the Dead celebrations, those who are living dance to welcome those who are deceased with traditional regional performance dancing as well as with good old shake-your-booty, bust-a-move contemporary dancing. The dancing begins in the homes and towns and ends up in the cemeteries amidst the candles, flowers and extravagantly decorated graves.
Anybody ever see Thriller? I think MJ had the right idea.

Please make the acquaintance of Danzante the dancer, #5 in my Dia de los Muertos series:
