Although the music has roots in traditional nineteenth-century banda music from northern Mexico, Mexican immigrants in Chicago created the dance style. Dancers clad in Wranglers, cowboy boots, and embroidered leather belts gather in Chicago's clubs and dance halls to enjoy the friendly atmosphere and dance to the popular, fast-paced music. Watch as Chicago residents Rosa Villanueva and Victor Manuel Ceja describe pasito duranguense's wide appeal and demonstrate a few of the dance steps.The content and comments posted here are subject to the Smithsonian Institution copyright and privacy policy (www.si.edu/copyright/).
