In many Latin American countries the Quinceañera, celebrated when a girl reaches fifteen, marks the passage to Womanhood. The characteristic ball gown, in Mexico pink seems to have become the favorite, is frequently seen around town. After the Quinceañera Mass a festivity follows usually with a series of carefully choreographed dances at which the Quinceañera, which refers to both the girl and the event, dances with her parents followed by other members of her family which in Mexico can be quite numerous.
