Students receive professional training from the esteemed Ballet Folklórico Dance Conservatory facult
Ballet Folklórico students expand their understanding of choreography by learning repertoire from the various states and regions of Mexico and Spain, thereby developing technical strength and artistry, along with historical and cultural values. Students are exposed to renowned guest artists, university faculty, and industry leaders. Through performances, students are provided the opportunity to develop their creative abilities and express themselves as dancers and artists. Each year culminates in a main stage production highlighting the material learned throughout the year. Ballet Folklórico students also present a piece of their own choreography during Clase Abierta at the end of each year. There are additional performance opportunities available through the conservatory’s widely recognized audition-only group, Las Estrellas, which performs at charitable events throughout the community.
