Ballet Folklorico Nacional
Friday, May 15
Founded in 1972, the Ballet Folklorico Nacional is known as one of the most exciting groups presenting authentic dances of Mexico. Through a heady rush of tapping heels, dazzling costumes, and insistent rhythms, audiences learn about the traditional dances, fascinating folklore, and magnificent ceremonial rituals from regions all over Mexico.
The Ballet Folklorico’s goals are to share their traditions, create interest and pride in the students’ own cultural backgrounds, and foster a sense of respect for other cultures.
