Mexican Folklorico Dance Classes

Classes begin on Tuesday, August 4, 2020. Following the lead by Laredo’s public school system, all children’s classes will be held using a live, on-line platform for six weeks. Adults have the option of joining our in-person classes in which we abide by the state of Texas COVID-19 guidelines or you may opt to join us via an on-line platform.

Classes are offered for ages four years to adult in all skill levels. All students learn the footwork technique, skirt movements, and history of the traditional dances of Mexico. Classes meet weekly with performance opportunities as part of one of our dance groups: Ballet Folklorico Infantil, Ballet Folklorico Juvenile, Teen/Adult Beginner, and the Adult Company.
