New Quinceanera Trend: Mexican Pointy Boot Dancers

Categories: Fashion
These boots are made for pointing.
We've just spied the latest trend for Quinceaneras (at least in banquet halls in Dallas and Houston): Dance crews in Mexican pointy boots getting down to tribal music. As the name implies, these kicks come to an exaggerated point and can stick out as far as seven feet.

In the video that follows, Mexican dance crews explain that the boots are all about style. For any aspiring Elton Johns, they come in red, pink, and green sequin. And as they also come in plaid and most dancers wear them with skinny jeans, there's clearly a rising faction of Mexico City hipsters out there. Oddly, those featured in the video don't mention the most obvious use for the boots: drop-kicking and impaling Chupacabras. Watch this clip:

Anytime a bunch of men gather and compare length, we imagine an invisible Greek chorus chanting PENIS, PENIS, PENIS behind them. Yet the pointy boots are clearly linked to a specific genre -- tribal music, which DJ Erick Rincón describes as African sounds paired with Cumbia basslines. The Tribal movement started in Mexico City at the turn of the 21st century, but according to the crews in the video, the elf-ish boots have only been around a year.

Dancing in the long boots can be tricky. So if anyone hands you a pair at a Quinceanera, make sure you're prepared by watching this helpful pointy boot dance video:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I have the pleasure to brief you on our Data Visualization software "Trend Compass".

TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way by displaying in one chart 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size & Bubble color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. Discover trends hidden in spreadsheets. It could be used in analysis, research, presentation etc. In different business sectors, to name a few we have Deutsche Bank, NBC Universal, RIM, Vanguard Institutional Investor, Ipsos, Princeton University as our clients.

You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.

All the best.
