Mexican Ballet Folklórico is a traditional art form that combines elements of classical ballet and folk dancing. These colorful dances are frequently performed at celebrations and festivals. Choreography, costumes and accompanying music vary by geographic region, and may depict local animals, attire and folklore.
MECA’s Mexican Ballet Folklorico ensembles are comprised of both youth and adults. The practice of this traditional art form helps students develop a sense of cultural pride and respect for diversity, as well as physical coordination, teamwork and confidence. These ensembles are frequently invited to perform across the Greater Houston area, and have brought home numerous competition trophies.
