Ballet Folklorico Mexico Lindo: Interactive Dance Workshop
Ballet Folklorico Mexico Lindo was established in 2003 in Southwest Idaho, and is a community based Mexican folk-dance company. The dancers learn and perform traditional Mexican dances from the various (states) regions of Mexico. Noteworthy performances include LatinX authors Reyna Grande and Sandra Cisneros, for Idaho Governor C.L "Butch" and Mrs. Otter, the Mexican Consulate of Boise, the Four Rivers Cultural Center in Oregon, the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle, the Children's Home Society, the Oppenheimer Foundation, the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, the Civil Rights Symposium in Twin Falls, the Boise Festival of Trees, the Hispanic Heritage Festival in Twin Falls, Idaho, the Ford Idaho Center, the Utah State Fair, and Hewlett Packard Headquarters to name a few. They've also made television and radio performances and have been featured in print publications and social media. Educational outreach is a favorite of their founder, Monique; teaching is her passion! New dancers are always welcome, and Monique is of the opinion that yes, absolutely everyone can dance!
