Baile folklórico dancers

Dancers at the Sour Lake Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Banquet perform baile folklórico, literally “folkloric dance” in Spanish. According to the book “Iconic Mexico: An Encyclopedia from Acapulco to Zócalo” by Eric Zolov, Amalia Hernandez pioneered baile folklorico in the 1950s with her establishment and leadership of the Ballet Folklorico Mexico. Additionally, she founded a school in Mexico City for the study and practice of classical and folkloric dance techniques.

Beaumont Civic Ballet wants to take you back to the time when music had meaning. Artists were not only creating music that has gone on to withstand the test of time, but each lyric and note was from the heart and soul. These artists went on to change the culture of music, which can still be felt today.
