The Ballet Folklorico Mexico de Los Hermanos Avila was founded in 1972 by a brother and sister duo who are still performing with the company. The Ballet Folklorico has been recognized by U.S. and Mexican officials as one of the most exciting groups presenting authentic regional dances of Mexico. The Ballet Folklorico was created not only to preserve Mexican folk dances but also as a means to provide others with the opportunity to appreciate diversity among cultures.
This program includes historic dances from various regions of Mexico, as well as dances dedicated to the "soldaderas," the courageous women who supported and fought alongside men during the Mexican revolution.
