Ballet Folklorico de Chicago 5th Anniversary–Chicago–Hispanic Heritage Month

Ballet Folklorico de Chicago, Chicago’s largest and most inclusive ballet folklorico organization, is celebrating our 5th anniversary on Sunday,
September 15, 2024, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The celebration will be held at Chicago’s premier event center, Copernicus Center, located at
5216 W. Lawrence Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60630.

This vibrant 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 African, European and Indigenous
influences of the people who lived in the region where the dances originated. Each group left their mark, and you will notice the different
sounds, materials, colors, and tempo during the performance.

Become closer to our traditions and let the energetic spirit of each Mexican state take over!

Ballet Folklorico de Chicago organizations’ mission: Ballet Folklorico de Chicago is a non-profit organization that provides low-cost cultural and
artistic dance instruction in Chicago. Our dances are a mixture of ballet and Mexican folk dances that are rooted in African, European, and
Indigenous influences and we seek to preserve all our traditions for future generations.

We promote education that speaks to our communities ethnic/cultural identity and instills pride in their identity. We likewise invest in our
children’s futures by awarding yearly college scholarships.

We seek to elevate the reputation of our community through the arts. Our organization promotes wholesome activities that all members of the
