Ballet Folklorico de Chicago Facebook Event

Ballet Folklorico de ChicagoBallet Folklorico de Chicago, Chicago’s largest and most inclusive ballet folklorico organization is celebrating our 4th anniversary on Sunday, May 21, 2023, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm. The celebration will be held at Chicago’s premier event center, Copernicus Center, located at 5216 W. Lawrence Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60630.

This event will be a celebration of the Mexican culture, and the performances will combine dance and live music to bring you Mexico’s folklore and history. The dances encompass the history, geography, traditions and most particularly the influences of the people who lived in the region where their dances originated. Each region has an ensemble that reflects its heritage since Mexico (like the US) was settled by Indigenous, Europeans and Africans. Each group left their mark, and you will notice the different sounds, materials, colors, and tempo.

Ballet Folklorico de Chicago performs at all types of high profile and high visibility events throughout the year such as: famous artists, city-wide events, and festivals, private, school and church performances. Please join us as we fundraise for additional programs and events for the benefit of our community! You do not want to miss the passion for our culture that all our classes (kids and adults) will be displaying.

Become closer to our traditions and let the vibrant spirit of Mexico take over!
