BALLET FOLKLORICO MEXICANO

Founded in 1967, the ensemble Ballet Folklorico Mexicano has achieved recognition both in the United States and in Mexico for its wide-ranging dance repertoire and stunning choreography. In 1980, the Mexican consulate in San Francisco named the company the official ambassador for ongoing cultural activities with Mexico. It has held that distinction for over twenty years during which time it regularly conducts tours in Mexican cities such as Guadalajara, Oaxaca, Aguascalientes, and Durango. Ballet Folklorico Mexicano hopes to empower communities and to educate the general public by providing a greater understanding and appreciation for Mexican culture and folklore through music, dance and traditional art forms.
