Hello! It’s our pleasure to welcome you into our Ballet Folklorico Esperanza family. Our non-profit 501(c)3 dance company is dedicated to promoting and preserving the beauty of Mexican culture through folkloric dance. We strive to strengthen our students’ confidence and help showcase their talent and accomplishments in a unique cultural environment. Classes are open to youth 5-18, from any ethnic background. We are based out of Avondale, AZ.
We focus on dance principles to build strength, balance, grace and discipline. Students learn the basics of “zapateado” footwork and master the fundamentals of ballet folklorico including skirt work, dance techniques, performance style and choreography. Additionally, students will learn customs, culture, and the various regional traditions of Mexico. We embrace and encourage parental involvement. Your active participation provides enthusiasm and motivation; that contributes to a safe and accepting environment for your dancer to learn and grow. Our hope is for our youth to have pride, strengthen their self-esteem, be positive role models, and accomplish their goals.
