Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico offers many performing and educational opportunities. Each year, an annual recital showcases the entire program, providing participants with a chance to express their appreciation for the cultural dances of Mexico. Qualified students may be asked to join the ASFB Folklórico performance group or participate in other educational events that are held across the Western U.S. and Mexico. These have included performances at the Mexican Independence Day celebration with the Colorado Symphony organized by the Mexican Consulate in Denver. ASFB Folklórico has also been represented at national and international folklorico conferences in Las Vegas Nevada, and Hidalgo, Mexico to name a few.
From Rifle to Aspen, over 160 students come together to perform original choreography inspired by the traditions of Mexico. This performance showcases the students of our acclaimed after-school program, designed to enrich the lives of children and inspire a new generation of creative thinkers and artists. Be carried away by the vibrant culture, color, and infectious energy of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Folklórico!
As many of you know, it is a tradition in the dance world to give flowers to dancers after a performance.
We will be offering flower sales again as a fundraiser for our Scholarship Program. This year scholarships have helped many students in both the ballet school and Mexican Folkdance program. If you would like to celebrate your child’s accomplishments in this year’s recital by purchasing flowers, please fill out the form below and turn it in no later than May 7th. We must place our flower order no later than May 9th. Late orders will not be able to be fulfilled. A limited selection of flowers will be available for purchase the day of the performance.
Bouquets will be made up of roses, baby’s breath, neatly wrapped in a plastic sleeve with a card with your child’s name. Roses will come in a variety of colors. We apologize but we cannot accommodate requests for specific colors of flowers in a bouquet.
