Feeling festive but have a strange desire to honor cultural traditions? Solution: The Ballet Folklorico of Dallas is putting on a show. If you've never experienced this kind of traditional Mexican dancing, there will be lots of fancy steps, bright clothes and swishing skirts as the group explores folk dances from the Mexican states of Veracruz, Sinaloa and others for the Annual Gala Nuestras Raices 6:30 p.m. Saturday. It should be a toe-tapping good time, and if you end up really enjoying yourself, be daring: The BFOD offers dance classes too. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door. The recital takes place at the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak St. For more information, call 214-331-3778 or visit balletfolkloricoofdallas.com.
