Danzón, a popular Cuban music-dance form, is performed daily in the Port of Veracruz, Mexico, mostly by older people. While danzón is often framed as an older people’s practice by local culture industries, performers insist that danzón is not an age-specific phenomenon. Ethnographic research reveals that local danzón practices must be understood in relation to women’s romantic lives beyond marriage, men’s potency, and shifting mores over the life course.
