Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico enriches the lives of children through free, after-school instruction in Mexican folkloric dance. Aspen Santa Fe Ballet founded Folklórico in 1998 with a goal of engaging the community with high quality arts outreach. Folklórico now directly impacts the lives of 240 students, grades K-12 in Basalt, Carbondale and Santa Fe public schools. The award-winning Folklórico ensemble performs regularly across the region.
With remarkable success Folklórico transcends cultural barriers through the art of dance. Folklórico teaches artistic excellence, promotes positive youth development and encourages the crossing of cultural boundaries by students and their families. It represents Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's firm commitment to engage and inspire new generations of creative thinkers and artists.
