Folklor for Everyone

Baile folklórico, literally "Folkloric Dance" or “Folk Dance” in Spanish, is a collective term for traditional Latin American dances that emphasize local folk culture with ballet characteristics-pointed toes, intricate movements, highly choreographed.

 

Folklórico is the combination of Ballet steps and musical pieces representing regions and folk music genres of México.

 

Classes are great for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Anybody who has the true desire and passion for the performing arts can try this expressive dance form reflective of Mexican culture, dancers range from the age of 4 years old to adults.

 

Each class begins with a warm-up to stretch and loosen the body, while toning, next to the class, moves into footwork (zapateado).   

 

Learn to combine the zapateado with body movements each distinct for each folklórico dance region as they start combining all of these into multiple dances.
