Ballet Folklórico is comprised of traditional Mexican dances. The dances derive from the various cultures in México including those from indigenous tribes and communities.
“Tradiciones’ encompasses a mixture of history, tradition, live music and dynamic dancing for the whole family to enjoy,” said Adolfo Salinas, Artistic Coordinator with Ballet Folklórico at South Texas College. “The group has been working hard putting this event together and will present three new regions that include an Aztec warrior dance piece, a love story from the state of Nayarit, and a historic dance piece on the settlement and establishment of the people of Veracruz, among other regions that the crowd has previously enjoyed.”
