Ballet Folklorico Showcase

¡A Ponemos Chancla!

Courtesy Ballet Folklorico de Tejas

Every year stretching back centuries to the introduction of the polka in Mexico, the people that live in this part of the world have revered and celebrated their peculiarly eclectic form of folk party music with celebrations like Mariachi Spectacular, a big yearly thing that features some of the best players and performers in the region. Many say the highlight of the four-day fiesta is the annual performance by Ballet Folklorico. The Ballet Folklorico Showcase is scheduled, as part of the four-day intensive spectacular, for Thursday, July 12. Beginning at 7:45pm and continuing for a rousing and entertaining hour and a half, this performance at the Kiva Auditorium in downtown Burque features costumes, dancing and music from the cultures of northern Mexico, southern New Mexico and west Texas—all under the moving and colorful aegis of ancient tradition and modern expression. This event is free and meant for all ages; check out for more details about the overarching Mexican musical party.
