Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano
Started in Asheboro in October 2006 as a hobby. A friend had the idea of forming a Mexican folk ballet because of an approaching date: December 12th, a date that celebrates “Our Lady of Guadalupe” in Mexico and Catholic homes, to keep a little of their roots and festivities and from there comes the name. From that day, Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano grew in popularity and its varieties of music, costumes, choreographies, and steps. Currently, the ballet is made up of 7 boys and 14 girls between 8 and 41 years old. Those who make up the ballet practice twice a week for up to 3 hours. Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano, since 2009, has participated annually in “International Festival of Raleigh”, has performed at the “Multicultural Festival of Lexington” for the past 4 years, “Wilmington Azalea Festival”, “Ocracoke Festival” and “Ocracoke Hispanic Festival” these two at Outer Banks in November 2016 and June of 2017 respectively, at the “Festival of the People” in Raleigh and Fiesta in Winston Salem and at different festivals in Virginia Beach. We have led the Mexican culture at school events at Elon University in Burlington, High Point University in High Point, Randleman High School in Randleman, North Asheboro Middle School in Asheboro, as well as at the University of South Carolina. Also, in many other events both public and private and religious by many other parts of North Carolina. Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano is characterized by being traditional in its costumes and its music. Ballet Folklorico Guadalupano enhances the diversity of cultures in North Carolina and enthusiastically takes a little piece of Mexico wherever it is presented.
